Case #: 200X-CXXT-1XXX2 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was pulled over for a road rage incident. He allegedly cut off another vehicle and slammed on his brakes and weaved in front of another vehicle to prevent them from passing. After the vehicle did pass him, he began to flash his high beams at them. When the officer approached the vehicle, he noticed that the defendant smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. The officer asked him to step out of the vehicle and perform field sobriety exercises. The defendant did the exercises and was arrested afterwards. He was taken to jail and refused the breath test claiming that he wanted to speak with his attorney first. The case went to trial and a jury found him not guilty after deliberating for a short 30 minutes.
