TLC has a new show called DUI. It is basically COPS, but aimed at just DUI arrests. In watching one of the episodes (episode 1), the officer administers the HGN test (eye test). This test is supposed to be administered the same by every officer throughout the country. In watching the video, a trained dwi lawyer can see the officer clearly administers the test incorrectly. (Video hopefully to follow). In the next episode, some police officer administers the one leg stand incorrectly. Fortunately, for that person, cameras were recording how the test was actually administered, and the defendant is not stuck with the officer testifying he did it correctly and according to his training. Unfortunately, throughout New Hampshire, hardly any police departments use cruiser videos anymore. Most departments will state it is due to funding issues. If you are charged with DWI in New Hampshire, hopefully, you were arrested by one of the few departments who actually have video recording of the arrest. (Or happen to be followed by someone filming a TV show).
