Case #: 1XX-00XXX54MXX10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The police set up a DUI checkpoint in Miramar. The defendant was driving towards the checkpoint with his high beam headlights on. After passing the designated last point of exit prior to the checkpoint, the defendant pulled into the parking lot of a business. The police approached him based on seeing the high beam lights, avoidance of the checkpoint and the fact that the officer claimed he could see that the defendant was not wearing a safety belt. Upon making contact with the defendant, the officer noticed that he appeared to be intoxicated. The defendant performed poorly on roadside exercises. The results of the breath test indicated that the defendant was above the legal limit. The firm argued a motion to suppress based on the stop of the defendant’s vehicle. The judge granted the firm’s motion to suppress. All charges were dismissed.
