Case #: 1XX01XX99XXX10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The police observed the defendant crash into a raised median. The car continued to drive, changing lanes frequently without signaling. Both driver’s side tires were flat and the defendant was driving on the rims. When the officer pulled the defendant over, he noticed the odor of alcohol on his breath, and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy. The defendant indicated he had been out drinking with some co-workers. When the defendant got out of his car, he had to lean on the car to keep from falling. The officer asked him to perform roadside exercises, and the defendant performed poorly on each. The defendant took a breath test and the results were .145 and .153 (almost twice the legal limit). The firm investigated his case and prepared for trial. On the day of trial, the State dropped the DUI charge.
