Case #: 2017-CT-****
Our client was traveling down the road late at night when he rear ended the vehicle in front of him. After the police arrived to investigate the crash, the officers noticed our client swaying and the odor of alcohol from his breath. Our client admitted to consuming a few beers prior to driving. The officers requested our client perform field sobriety exercises and our client refused. The officers arrested our client and transported him to the jail where he would eventually supply breath samples of .303 and .313, nearly 4 times the legal limit. Our attorneys reviewed the crash report and body camera video and filed a motion to suppress and exclude evidence based on errors made by the arresting officer during the investigation. Prior to the start of the hearing, the State agreed to drop the DUI charge.
