Case #: 0XX9-CT-00XXX210 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
This case was a DUI that involved the defendant being stopped for an extensively bad driving pattern: following too closely, improper lane change, crossing the stop bar, and weaving across lanes of traffic. Once stopped the defendant admitted to having two beers over the course of six hours and to taking prescription muscle relaxers. After an extensive review of the case it was discovered that there were numerous problems with the State’s case, mainly that a drug test was never requested by the officer involved in the case and that the defendant’s performance on the roadside exercises were not bad enough to be indicative of impairment. The State Attorney’s Office amended the DUI charge to reckless driving.
