Case #: 07-272XXXXM10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was involved in a severe one car accident that caused a tremendous damage to three lawfully parked vehicles. This accident was observed by civilian witnesses. An officer arrived on scene and began an investigation and noticed that the defendant was responding strangely to simple questions about the accident. For example, the defendant told the Officer that nothing happened and handed the officer a credit card when asked to provide her drivers license. The officer noticed that the defendant was having great difficulty standing and that her speech was slurred. The defendant was also in possession of two water bottles filled with vodka, but the officer testified that her breat in no way smelled of alcohol. The defendant performed roadside sobriety exercises so poorly that they were stopped for her safety and the defendant refused the breath test. Four counts of DUI with Property Damage were all dropped by the State after the Judge Granted our Motion to Suppress the Defendant’s Arrest for Lack of Probable Cause. The entire case was dismissed.
