Case #: 130XXX34XX10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
Officers were dispatched to a single car crash. A bystander had called in a report that a car had crashed into a tree and then drove away. The witness gave a description of the car as well as a tag number. Officers in the area spotted a car matching the description and conducted a traffic stop. The officer noticed an odor of alcohol on his breath, slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. The officer asked the Defendant to get out of his car to perform roadside exercises. The Defendant had trouble getting out of his car. He admitted to drinking earlier and also taking ambien, a prescription sleeping pill. The Defendant performed poorly on all of the roadside exercises. The Defendant agreed to give a breath and urine sample which was consistent with the Defendant’s admission that he consumed alcohol and took prescription sleeping pills. The attorney for the firm investigated the case, and after communications with the State Attorney, all charges were dropped.
