This weekend police in Wake County conducted checkpoints that ended in arrest of 130 drivers. These checkpoints are sometimes procedurally flawed.

I recently saw a case where police had pre-filled in their reports before setting up the checkpoint and then tried to claim the reports accurately reflected their observations. The judge didn’t buy that.

If you’ve been stopped at a Raleigh DWI checkpoint, call me.
