An inadmissible arrest report which is not sworn “under penalty of perjury” cannot be used to supplement or explain the sworn California DMV Officer’s Statement DS 367, San Diego DUI attorneys. Quoting California DMV’s Manual references including a leading case entitled “MacDonald v. Guiterrez,” the language attorneys need to review which can help either DMV or the driver’s lawyer depending on the facts.
