Fighting Drug-Related DUI Charges

If police pull over a driver on suspicion of DUI but find no evidence of an excessive blood alcohol content (BAC), they may still be able to charge the driver with driving under the influence of a drug (DUID) if they can demonstrate the presence of drugs in the bloodstream. The drug does not have to be an illegal narcotic. If a legal, prescription drug results in unsafe or erratic behavior behind the wheel, the driver may still face a DUID charge.
