How to Win a DUI Arrest Contest

As a Georgia DUI Lawyer noted, when contests and quotas are in play, some police agencies keep their eyes on the prize. In that case , there is a civil rights lawsuit attacking quotas for DUI Arrests.

Florida DUI Arrest Contest – True Costs

Meanwhile, back in Florida, one small Florida town became the best losers by finishing second in the DUI Arrest Contest that is an ongoing competition to see who can make the most arrests and win cash and prizes. They won $18,000 for 86 arrests.


Let’s do the math (show your work) and find the actual cost to some Americans – $1,720,000.

86 Arrests x $5,000.00 Legal Fees =   $   430,000
86 Arrests x $2,500.00 Fines =  $   215,000

86 Arrests x $12,500 Insurance Increase = $1,075,000

Total Estimated Costs to Citizens =                  $1,720,000

Great return on investment.

Give away $18,000 and cost citizens nearly $2,000,000.
This is a 9500 percent return on investment ( ROI ).

By the way, the headline read, “Village police win $18,000 for DUI safety equipment.” The police in this town also train cops in the faux science of Drug Symptom Recognition. The chief of police sends his”Drug Recognition Enforcement (DRE) program officers to attend numerous DUI checkpoints and training to gain valuable experience.”  We have covered the fake science associated with Drug Recognition Experts and their creation by the DUI Industrial Complex here.

Winning an Arrest Contest for DUI

DUI cops win and innocent citizens lose? Three more Florida DUI cops /  police officers have been recognized by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving)  for their diligent enforcement of drunk driving laws in 2013.  The officers are: Jason Denney with 28 DUI arrests; Travis White, with 20 DUI arrests; and Kevin Skelton, with 12 DUI arrests. The officers were treated to dinner. In 2013, the police department also received 1st place honors in a “DUI Challenge” and a ‘Law Enforcement Challenge.” Not sure what those other contests were, but it appears that citizens’ arrests are prizes in this despicable contest.

Cops Issue a Press Release?

According to a department press release: “By taking part in traffic and safety events including ‘Click It or Ticket’ and ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,’ the . . . Police Department is making significant and positive impacts in our community by reducing traffic related crashes, injuries and fatalities.” We suspect there were no demerits for people that were arrested and then cleared after hours in jail.

Worst DUI Arrest in the World

DUI Attorney in Tampa has just received a report that a 200 Arrest Award Winner in a DUI Contest has admitted to numerous violations of DUI Arrest procedures including shutting off her microphone to hide what she was saying to DUI suspects during her traffic stops. 
We have just obtained this shocking video where she tasers a driver who according to one source the video “caught her tasering a terrified man after he refused to get out of his car asking to call his lawyer. The man was later found to have been sober.” The cop flew off the handle when the driver sought to get advice of a DUI attorney / lawyer. The driver was tested at a BAC .03 and the the case was settled for $40,000.

In my 20 years of criminal defense experience, this is in my opinion, the worst dui arrest I have ever seen. I hereby award this cop my award for Worst DUI Cop With 200 DUI Arrests per Year in the World.
