DUI APC ATTORNEYS IN NORMAN
You Do Not Have to Be Driving to Be Charged with DUI
People are sometimes shocked to find that they can be arrested on suspicion of an alcohol-related driving crime even when not actually driving. The charge of actual physical control (APC) of a motor vehicle while intoxicated is essentially the same as driving under the influence (DUI) in Oklahoma, but it does not require evidence that you drove. For example, APC arrests have been made when the defendant was waiting in the car for someone else to drive or parked and sleeping.
If you have been charged with an APC violation, you have all the same critical concerns as a person charged with DUI or DWI. Your driving privileges, freedom, financial stability, and even your job may be on the line. Many of the same defense strategies and negotiating approaches may also be viable in your case. To work with an attorney who knows Oklahoma laws and case precedents in depth, you can contact Nichols Dixon anytime.
