Case #: 1XXX0163XXXM1X0A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was traveling at a high rate of speed. He pulled behind a marked Broward Sheriff’s Office vehicle that had its emergency lights activated. He exited his vehicle, but forgot to put it into park. His car rolled forward striking the police car and causing damage. The police officer made contact with the defendant and noticed that he had trouble maintaining his balance and had the odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. The defendant admitted to having 2 or 3 beers, and his blood alcohol content was over the legal limit. This was the defendant’s second arrest for DUI. The Firm developed defenses and prepared for trial. Less than a week before trial, the State dropped all charges relating to the DUI.
