The Defendant was charged with DUI causing injury with a blood alcohol level exceeding .20 g/210L. The Defendant crashed into 2 other vehicles causing one to roll over. The Defendant remained in his vehicle after the crash and the officer noticed that the defendant was confused and dazed. The officer stated he did not notice the odor of alcohol, bloodshot eyes or slurred speech. The Defendant was then taken to an ambulance and admitted to consuming three glasses of wine to the EMT in the ambulance. The officer’s ordered that the Defendant’s blood be drawn by the EMT. The blood reading was over 4 times the legal limit, .265g/210L.
