The Deputy noticed that the Defendant had an odor of an alcoholic beverage, bloodshot glassy eyes and slurred speech. The Defendant also admitted to consuming 5 drinks in the 45 minutes prior to being pulled over. The DUI Task Force investigator was called to the scene and noticed that the Defendant had an odor of an alcoholic beverage, bloodshot eyes and was unsteady on his feet. The Defendant performed poorly on roadside sobriety exercises and refused the breath test because he wanted his Doctor to be present for the testing. The Defendant was acquitted by a Jury.
