Case #: 12XXXX111P NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant was stopped after a BOLO went out about a possible impaired driver. During the BOLO, the Defendant drove up on the Detective and began following him too closely. After passing the detective, the Defendant began weaving back and forth in his lane. The Defendant said he drank some Budweiser bottles and his eyes were watery/glassy and bloodshot. Additionally, he smelled like alcohol and had flushed cheeks. The Defendant was asking the officer immediately if he could “bail out.” The defendant stated he would not perform roadsides and was arrested. He was then arrested and taken to the jail where he refused to provide a sample of his breath. After discussing the case in detail with the State Attorney’s Office, and the legal motions that were going to be filed, the State agreed to dismiss the charges for driving under the influence two weeks before the trial date.
