A June 13, 2016 ruling in Delaware’s Court of Common Pleas can have wide implications in future DUI arrests. Judge Carl C. Danberg ruled that the “exceptionally broad” definitions of drugs allows Delaware police officers to establish probable cause for a driving under the influence arrest without identifying the specific substance a person may have used.
