Case #: 08-1XX477XXX10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant went through a red light and cut off a Broward Sheriff’s Deputy who is a member of the DUI Task Force as his marked unit entered the intersection. The Deputy initiated a traffic stop for the red light violation. He noticed the Defendant to have the odor of an alcoholic beverage, flushed face, slurred speech and bloodshot watery eyes. The Defendant also was unable to locate or identify his vehicle documentation and was unsteady exiting his vehicle and admitted to “drinking a bottle of wine”. The Defendant then refused the Deputy’s requests to do roadside exercises and to submit to a breath test. The Firm filed a Motion to Suppress the Defendant’s Refusal to Submit to a Breath Test and the State dropped all DUI charges.
