Case #: 2013 CT ****
Our client was parked in a parking lot of a convenient store when an Orange County Deputy arrived to a noise complaint or possible fight. After further investigation, our client was cleared as being not part of the complaint. The Deputy then determined that our client, though not actively driving, was under the influence of alcohol and conducted a DUI investigation. The Deputy called for an additional DUI specific unit to come to the scene and take over the investigation. After performing poorly on the exercises, our client was arrested and refused to provide a breath sample. After over 2 years of work and a handful of motions, the State amended the charge to reckless driving, however after the Judge informed the State there was no evidence to support any driving, much less reckless driving, the State dismissed the case.
