Case #: 18-MM-0***45-A-O
A witness called 911 to report that our client was asleep, behind the wheel of a van, blocking the gated entrance to an apartment complex. The police responded to the scene and the officers ordered him to exit the vehicle – when he didn’t comply immediately they took him out of the vehicle and yanked him face first onto the ground. The officers then requested that the client perform roadside sobriety exercises – to which he refused. The officers arrested the client and charged him with DUI and resisting an officer without violence. The Ticket Clinic Attorney attempted unsuccessfully to negotiate with the prosecutor to get them to drop the case. The motion to suppress went forward and the judge found the detention was in violation of the Client’s 4th Amendment rights. Based upon the ruling from the judge the state was forced to drop both charges.
