Case #: 16-CT-XXX6
Our client was stopped for failure to utilize his vehicle's lights, and subsequently charged with a DUI. We prepared a Motion arguing that the police officers lacked the reasonable suspicion needed to detain our client for the DUI investigation. In our opinion, the video did not support the officer's conclusion that our client showed visible signs of impairment. Our second argument was that the driving pattern was not indicative of an impaired driver. Further, we argued that the police failed to obtain the proper consent to perform the roadside exercises, and made our client feel that the exercises were mandatory. Based on the numerous arguments that we presented, the State agreed to drop the DUI charge.
