Case #: 06-102XXXXM10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was stopped within a BSO DUI checkpoint on Oakland Park Boulevard. Upon making contact with the defendant, the BSO deputy noticed the defendant to have a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage, bloodshot watery eyes, extremely slurred speech, slow and lethargic movements, and a dazed look. The defendant was asked to move his car to an area to perform roadside exercises and almost hit a cone and another vehicle. The defendant was asked to perform roadside sobriety exercises and did so poorly. The defendant submitted to a breath test on site and registered .191/.194 on the intoxylizer, well over twice the legal limit. The firm filed a motion to suppress the stop at the check point and the detention of the defendant by the arresting officer. The judge granted the motion to suppress and all evidence was excluded from trial. The State’s appeal of the judge’s ruling was dismissed. The State dropped all charges.
