Case #: 06-332XMM10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
An anonymous caller reported that the defendant was driving all over the road in a reckless manner. Officers initiated a traffic stop upon the vehicle and noticed that the defendant had slurred speech, bloodshot and watery eyes and an odor of alcohol emanating from his breath. Officers also testified that he was slumped over the steering wheel. The defendant had difficulty balancing, performed poorly on roadsides and refused the breath test and admitted to taking oxycodone. The Judge entered a directed verdict in favor of the defendant, the functional equivalent to a dismissal.
