2013 Holidays: Arizona Cops Arrest Close to 4000 for DUI

The Arizona Republic reports that around 4,000 people were pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving during the holiday season through the end of 2013.

While the police might have had a suspicion that you weren't sober behind the wheel, the rules say they have to prove it in court. And prove it beyond any reasonable doubt.

And while it may not have seemed like it when the police were arresting you, you have very important and powerful rights on your side.
