Resisting an Officer or Arrest

The Results

Osceola County. The client received a frantic telephone call from his fiancé who was 8 months pregnant with their first child. She had just been involved in a traffic crash. When the client arrived on scene a heated argument took place between the client and the other driver involved. When the police arrived on scene they ordered our client to leave the area because he was not involved in the crash. The client refused to leave the scene and was placed under arrest for resisting an officer without violence. After the consultation Ticket Clinic attorneys reached out to the state attorney in an attempt to get the case dismissed based upon common sense. The state refused, the states offer was an adjudication of guilt, probation, and several classes. Not satisfied, the Ticket Clinic attorney filed a motion to dismiss the charge based upon the order giving by the officer being unlawful. After presenting the state with case law and laying out the facts the charges were dismissed before the motion could be heard.

Charge

DUI

The Results

Miami-Dade County. Our client was facing a second DUI within the last year. The police came to be involved because our client was involved in a crash which resulted in injuries and overturned vehicles. Our client is accused of having left the scene of the accident on foot and was found by police approximately 300 feet away walking “rapidly”. Upon interacting with our client, police claim to have detected bloodshot watery eyes and the strong odor of alcohol as he spoke. Based on their investigating and the statements from witnesses, police concluded that our client was at fault for the accident and asked him to perform field sobriety exercises. Our client refused and was then taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation. Police arrive at the hospital and managed to convince our client to give a sample of his blood. Ticket Clinic attorneys challenged the supposed consent given by our client for his blood as it was caught on video and was plainly obvious our client was not in a position to consent to anything. As a result of this, on a case where prosecutors were originally seeking 6 months in jail, Ticket Clinic attorneys were able to negotiate a reduction of the DUI to reckless driving.

DUI

According to the police report, by the time the officers arrived on scene our client was already out of his vehicle. The police report further states that passing motorists had flagged down nearby police officers reference reckless driving regarding our client and that that was why our client had been pulled over.

On the day of trial, Ticket Clinic attorneys argued there was insufficient evidence to establish probable cause for the stop. Upon hearing this argument, the police promptly changed their entire story in contradiction of their already sworn to police report. Having been made uncomfortable by this change in position by the police, the prosecutor dismissed all charges.

DUI

The Results

Orange County. Our client was involved in a traffic crash after leaving a local bar. During the crash investigation the officer observed the odor of alcohol, slurred speech, swaying, and that the client had a prior DUI. The officer requested that the client perform sobriety tests, the client politely refused. The officer arrested the client and charged him with DUI. The client was then requested to take a breath test – he refused. While the Ticket Clinic attorney was investigating the case it was discovered that the officer had turned off his body camera to have an “off the record” conversation with his supervisor. During that off the record conversation it was discovered that the supervisor suggested the officer not arrest our client. At the first court date the state offered enhanced penalties including 12 months of probation, interlock device (breath test machine) on his car, community service hours, and a $2000 fine. The Ticket Clinic attorney filed a motion to suppress evidence and set the matter for a hearing. The day before the motion the prosecutor contacted the Ticket Clinic to speak with the attorney. After pointing out the weaknesses in the State’s case the prosecutor agreed to reduce the charge to Reckless Driving. The client was given a withheld adjudication, a $750 fine, and a class.

DUI

The Results

On 02/ 20/ 2017 at 0050 hours, Tampa Police Officer observed a cream 2015 Toyota Highlander SUV to be driving SB on Armenia Av S, approaching the red light at Swann Av W. As it was driving, it had on the left turn signal ( it passed several streets but did not turn) and drifted over the broken lane divider line on it’ s right. It then pulled up to the red light, turned off it’ s turn signal and stopped with all 4 tires beyond the stop bar, running the red light and blocking the crosswalk. When the traffic light turned green, the Officer activated his emergency overhead lights and conducted a traffic stop. The traffic stop location occurred at Swann Av W / Moody Av S.

Upon initial contact with the defendant, the Officer requested his driver license, insurance and vehicle registration. He was not the registered owner of the vehicle; he said it was a ” company car”. While handing over his insurance and registration, he also handed an ” operating instructions manual”. The Officer then explained why he stopped him and asked him if he had anything to drink tonight before driving. He answered ” No,sir. I live right down the street.” While speaking to him, the Officer observed red/ glassy/ bloodshot eyes, a blank/ dazed stare, slurred/ mumbled speech, he moved lethargically, had fumbling fingers, he was disoriented ( he thought that he had been pulled over on MacDill Ave S) and a distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage stemming from inside the vehicle. When asked if the Officer could check his eyes, the Defendant agreed . The Officer then asked him to step out of his vehicle The Defendant expressed that he was very nervous ( said that his heart was racing) and that he ‘doesn’ t mean to cause any trouble’. While checking the Defendant’s eyes, his body swayed and the Officer again confirmed the distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage to be stemming directly from the Defendant’s breath. The defendant stated that he has not been diagnosed with diabetes, high blood pressure, any mental illnesses, or epilepsy and does not suffer from strokes or seizures. He is not currently sick or injured and is notseeing a doctor or physician for anything. He did not have any medications or any illegal drug use. When asked again about any alcohol consumption, he stated “Ya… I’ m not.. Uh, no, I’ m not going to do a DUI checkpoint”. When told that this was not a “DUI Checkpoint” he stated “Ya, it’s like I’m being arrested for like a DUI or something”. The Officer then explained that he had concerns that the Defendant was impaired and then asked if he would submit to additional FSE’s, The Defendant stated “Why do you feel that way? No, I’m not willing to do them. I’ m confused. Confused in the way that…” The Officer then explained that he suspected the Defendant of possibly being physically impaired and that is why he is being asked to do FSEs. The officer also explained that failing to do FSE’s could result in consequences. First, any refusal can be used against him in a court of law and secondly, the Officer would be forced to make a decision on whether or not to arrest him for DUI based only on what is known up until this point, including his driving patterns, any indicators observed while making
personal contact and the HGN exercise. After asking him again, the Defendant
said “No, I don’t.”

Based on the totality of all the circumstances, the defendant was placed under arrest for DUI. The Defendant stated that he was unsure whether or not he wanted to provide that sample. Ultimately, the Defendant refused to provide a breath sample.

Result: The state dropped the DUI charge.

Deputy was on patrol in his marked HCSO patrol vehicle when he was dispatched to a reckless driver call. The call stated that the red Dodge sedan, pulled into the driveway and the driver did not get out of the vehicle. The Deputy located the listed vehicle and parked his patrol vehicle in front of the mailbox so that he was not blocking it in. He did not activate any emergency equipment. He approached the vehicle on the driver side and noticed that the front windows were down, key was in the ignition, engine on and music blaring. He was able to wake up the driver, who was by himself in the listed vehicle. After he was able to have the Driver turn off the music, he asked him to turn off the engine, which he did. While talking with the Driver, he saw that ” his eyes were glossy and bloodshot. His manual dexterity was poor while attempting to find his drivers license. He handed me his wallet when I asked for his license and then he fumbled with it. I could smell the strong and distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath and person. He was slurring his words. I asked him if he was medically okay and he replied that he was. I asked him if he had been drinking tonight and he replied that he has not had any alcohol in two days, then later changed his story to a couple of hours ago then finally stated that he was drinking in his car while driving”. He thought that the Driver was impaired and called for a DUI Investigator to respond to the scene.

A DUI investigator arrived and performed field sobriety exercises. During the exercises, the Driver showed signs of impairment and was arrested for DUI. The Driver was transported to Central Breath Testing where he refused to provide his two lawful breath samples. The DUI investigator advised the Driver of the Implied Consent warning in CB – 01 room in CBT ( see video), which he stated that he understood and was still going to ” Refuse” to give his breath samples.

Result:
The administrative suspension for Refusing to Provide a breath sample was set aside by the Hearing Officer due to insufficient evidence to support the suspension because the stop was determined to be invalid.
