The police asked the Defendant if he would perform roadside exercises and he agreed. According to the police, he performed all three of the exercises poorly. The Defendant admitted to drinking several beers while watching the races, but he refused to give a breath sample. The Defendant had previously been convicted of DUI. The attorney for the firm prepared for trial. On the day of the trial, the State dropped the DUI charge.
