Case #: 1XXXX806XXXM10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant was stopped at a red light when a police officer pulled behind him. The light turned green, and other vehicles proceeded through the intersection. The Defendant remained stopped at the green light. The officer conducted a traffic stop of the Defendant’s vehicle. When the officer made contact with the driver, he noticed signs that he may be impaired, including the smell of alcohol and a red, flushed face. The officer asked the Defendant to perform roadside exercises, and the Defendant did not do well. The Defendant gave a breath sample above the legal limit. The attorney for the firm argued a motion to suppress the stop of the vehicle and the Defendant’s subsequent arrest. The judge granted the motion and all charges were dropped.
