Is my husband getting screwed & is there anything we can do or is it just how it is
My husband has been a truck driver for about 12 years until recently. He was in a residential neighborhood w a 53 ft trailer & a sleeper.
He took a tight turn & clipped a mailbox. The owners said it happens all the time & should be moved no biggy till an out of town cop w nothing to do stops and proceeds to give my husband a field sobriety test which he passed.
Then a breathalyzer which he also passed.
Then without my husbands permission or the companys he searches the truck & finds a couple old & empty prescription bottles.
He then tells my husband to have someone take the truck back to the yard & that was it. Then he receives a letter in the mail saying his cdl was suspended & the reason given was immediate threat, to get it back is not easy & because he couldn't work.
He filled for unemployment, they denied him saying it was his fault he no longer had his cdl, on one side his cdl was suspended w absolutely no evidence of anything & on the other if he was taking prescription meds for a medical condition which in no way impair his ability to drive, how is it his fault.
Also, how can a cop have so much power and do this with no evidence of anything. I mean he clipped a mailbox, sometimes things r unavoidable someone parks where there not supposed to or comes speeding from the other way & he even went there on his next day off & repaired it.
My husband is a very hard worker, a great dad & a great guy & he's had his life torn apart because of a mailbox.
My question is, did this all happen on the up & up or is he getting screwed
