Case #: 08-0XX3XX6XXM10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
While on patrol, a police officer saw the defendant’s car run a red light, almost striking the police officer’s car. After making contact with the driver, the officer noticed an extreme odor of alcohol coming from the driver, a flushed complexion, slurred speech and red-watery eyes. The officer offered the driver the opportunity to perform roadside sobriety exercies, which the defendant refused. The defendant was arrested and then told the officer that he was “sorry for his mistake”. The defendant was transported to jail for breath testing, and placed on video. At the station, the defendant again refused to perform roadside exercises and refused to take a breath test. On the date of trial, the State dropped the DUI charge.
