Dennis Quaid

NOT Cited for DUI

After Traffic Stop

6/17/2012 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0617_dennis_quaid_tmz_duiDennis Quaid pulled off something most people in Hollywood can't these days -- he was NOT busted for DUI yesterday after getting a field sobriety test ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Quaid was pulled over in Marina del Rey for a stop sign violation when the officers decided to conduct a DUI investigation.

We're told cops determined DQ was not under the influence of anything and sent him on his way ... without so much as a ticket for the stop sign thing.

Seems like a small price to pay to get out of a moving violation.

My guess is the officer realized his brother was Randy Quaid and told him "you have enough problems in your life, I'll cut you a break this time".

never ever submit to a field sobriety test. never.

if they want to arrest you and test your blood or alcohol, fine, but dont play their games.

Cops can be cool;
I'm a hard-core biker ('Known Associate' with 1% MC) which comes-up via my drivers license. So whenever
I'm pulled-over, things get heightened pronto; there's also info on my past "arrest charges" (4 felonies), yet zero "charges in any court", so too, zero convictions!

With that as precurser; Cops still can end-up "cool". No ticket for '70 in a 50", after sobriety was OKed...
So letting Cops do their thing, can prove healthy!!!

Doesn't mean they're right in intial pull-over; but once you're in position, being cognisent of 'police power' ("roadside rules") is the only way to interact...

Get even and fight-back later via "court hearing"...

Anyway, Play Their Game (Cops); and then you
just may "Win Another Day"; I surely did. . . !

Guess what Dui is Cite and Release in some circuumstances,but only after you get your car towed and yourself booked in jail, but otherwise I dont think there is a citation for this without arrest. And Dennis you don't by law even have to consent to a field sobriety test that is against your rights but running through a stop sign might give probable cause if two officers where there but looks like only one saw it so in court its hard to even prove the stop sign running occured. don't let police violate your constitutional rights in this case your' 4th ammendment that stem from the bill of rights as part of the United States Constitution that is the Legal Binding Doctrine of these United States. Just remain silent, the cops are not your buddies or your lawyer or your doctor or anything like that, they are trained to even trick law abiding citizen into busting themsleves for revenue by lying to them and using other "Tactics". learn the Bill of Rights my friends. I bet Mr. Quaid was getting some chronic down there at the green goddess or something. lol
