Case #: 2016CT01########
The Client was stopped for speeding and after the stop the Officer noticed that the Client smelled like alcohol, had slurred speech and according to the Officer had trouble balancing. The Officer requested that the Client perform Field Sobriety Exercises,which the Client declined to do. The Officer then arrested the Client for DUI and transported him to the Breath Alcohol Testing facility and requested a breath sample of the Client. The Client refused to give a breath sample. The Firm obtained the evidence in the case, including the videos, and determined that the Officer in the case did not accurately describe the Client's condition. In the video the Client did not have trouble balancing or have slurred speech as alleged by the Officer in his report. After discussions with the Assistant State Attorney the DUI charge was dismissed.
