Anti-DUI Checkpoint Lawyer Goes to DUI Checkpoint to be Stopped, Gets Arrested

September 15, 2015  | 

A Florida attorney behind a controversial method to get out of a DUI checkpoint has ended up in handcuffs.

Warren Redlich’s technique requires you to not lower your window or speak to officers at a checkpoint.  He tried it in Coral Gables and it ended with him being arrested. He’s extremely happy about it though and says you should be too.

Attorney Warren Redlich’s method to avoid a DUI checkpoint gained a lot of press earlier this year.  Instead of lowering your window for police, he told you to show a card that reads “I remain silent, no searches,” your license and registration, all through the window.

That wasn’t the case when Redlich tried it in Coral Gables recently.  An officer gave him repeated warnings.  The police department wasn’t going for the documents on the glass technique.  A camera rolled on the incident as the officer opened the door and placed Redlich in handcuffs.  “They think that I’m required to roll down the window and hand over the license and I think I’m not required to roll down the window and I’m not required to hand over my license,” he explained.

Redlich believes DUI checkpoints are a waste of time.  “They are ineffective.  They are publicity stunts.  They don’t work,” he told CBS4’s David Sutta in an exclusive interview.

But even more so he believes they violate the 4th Amendment, protection from illegal searches.
