Case #: 07-2XXX578MXX10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
An officer from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department witnessed the defendant make a left turn at a steady red signal. The officer made contact with the defendant and noticed the odor of an alcoholic beverage, glassy eyes and the defendant admitted that he consumed several beers. The DUI investigator arrived and noticed the same observations as the stopping officer. The defendant participated in roadside sobriety exercises and performed poorly. The defendant refused to the breath test. The Firm filed a Motion to Suppress the DUI charge based upon lack of probable cause to arrest. Prior to the motion being heard, the State dropped the DUI charges.
