A REVIEW OF MARYLAND LAW PERTAINING TO DWI OFFENSES COVERS STATUTORY AND CASE LAW, ELEMENTS OF DWI OFFENSES, ESTABLISHING PROBABLE CAUSE IN DWI SITUATIONS (INCLUDING TYPES OF IRREGULAR DRIVING AND PERSONAL BEHAVIOR AND EVIDENCE OF USE IN ESTABLISHING PROBABLE CAUSE), AND LAWS AFFECTING THE ARREST OF DWI SUSPECTS.
