Tennessee is Crafting New Laws and New Beers in 2017

srpthumb-p16572-450x260-no.jpgThe craft beer industry has been thriving around the country over the past several years, but 2017 seems to be the best year yet for Tennessee thanks to a big change in the law.

Tennessee DUI 101: Knowing What You're Up Against

srpthumb-p6787-450x260-no.jpgDid you know that if you are driving a motor vehicle in Tennessee you have implicitly consented to give a blood, breath, or urine test if a law enforcement officer has reasonable grounds to believe you are driving under the influence?  This is because of the Tennessee Implied Consent Statute, ยง 55-10-406.  This statute provides law enforcement officers discretion to administer testing to determine whether you have been drinking, solely because you are driving.  While an officer needs "probably cause" to administer the test, this is typically not a difficult hurtle to overcome.  Refusal to submit to the testing will often result in a suspension of your driver's license, among other consequences, including jail time.

Don't delay any longer.
