The usuall arresting agency in DWI cases in Brooklyn is the NYPD. The officer will claim that the driver committed a driving infraction and will pull the driver over. The officer will then ask the driver if he has had anything to drink. If the driver states yes, he will be arrested. It is that simple. The NYPD has unwritten quotas when it comes to DWI arrests. They will also make more DWI arrests if there has been a recent case where a drunk driver has made the news.

After being placed under arrest, the officer will then transport you to take a breathalyzer test and coordination tests. You will then be brought before a judge for your arraignment. If this is your first arrest, you will be released and told to come back on another court date. This is usually handled at the courthouse at 120 Schermerhorn Street in dowtown Brooklyn. All of your court dates will be in this building. Court starts at 9:30 am and your should not be late. If you have been arrested for a DWI case in Brooklyn, call The Law Offices of Michael S.
