Case #: 130XXXXXXXXX0A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
According to the police, the Defendant was driving 51 mph in a 35 mph zone. The officer pulled her over. When he made contact with her, he noticed that she smelled like alcohol. Her face was flushed and she had bloodshot, glassy eyes. When she spoke to the officer, her speech appeared to be slurred. She told the officer that her registration was in her trunk. She was not able to open the trunk and kept hitting the window button rather than the trunk release. The officer asked if she would perform roadside exercises. The Defendant insisted numerous times that she needed to speak to her boyfriend. The officer told her she could not call anyone during the DUI investigation, and the Defendant continued to insist on making a phone call. The Defendant refused to do roadside exercises and was arrested for DUI. She then refused to submit to a breath test. The attorney for the firm investigated the case and prepared for trial. On the day of trial, the State Attorney dropped the DUI charge.
