Case #: 09CXXTXXX28A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
A Martin County Deputy observed the Defendant driving his large truck. According to the deputy’s police report, the Defendant vehicle was drifting in its lane causing the tires to touch the center and outside lines. At one point, the deputy stated he witnessed the Defendant’s vehicle nearly hit a guardrail, and then make a wide right turn. The Defendant had a strong odor of alcohol, slurred his speech, appeared dazed, confused and moody and performed poorly on the field sobriety tasks. The Defendant provided a breath sample of 0.111 and 0.103. Defense counsel was able to retrieve the deputy’s in car video which depicted a driving pattern far different then what the deputy alleged in his police report. Defense counsel prepared legal documents to suppress the traffic stop. The DUI charged was dropped.
