Question: Is it legal to be arrested by the police without questioning? I was arrested at my house for a DUI in Van nuys, CA and have friends who were with me to support that I wasn’t driving.

Answer: It is possible to be arrested even though there was no questioning done by officers. If there is evidence that lead the arresting agency to believe a crime has been committed, then they can arrest someone. You should hire an attorney to handle this DUI case and prove your innocence. Alibi’s as to where and what you were doing on the night of the alleged incident (ie. DUI) can certainly help. If you weren’t driving, then there shouldn’t be any DUI conviction.
