Case #: 08-XX21XXX8MM10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was seen making a high speed turn at the intersection of Powerline and Copans Road. The officer began to follow the defendant and witnessed him make sharp lane changes and a series of strange u-turns. The defendant pulled into parking spot located at a gas station that was closed at the time. The defendant exited his vehicle and went to the front door of the fully lit, but closed, gas station convenient store. The officer pulled his marked police unit directly behind the defendant’s vehicle, preventing the defendant’s vehicle from moving. The officer then commanded the defendant to move toward the officer in order to conduct a DUI investigation. At that time, the officer noticed the defendant to have an odor of an alcoholic beverage and bloodshot and glassy eyes. The defendant also admitted to drinking. The defendant refused all roadside testing and the breath test. The Firm filed a motion to Suppress the Stop of the defendant’s Vehicle and the Unlawful detention for Roadside Sobriety Exercises. All Motions were granted by the Court and the State dropped all charges, including the DUI.
