Case #: 2018-MM-****
Over the 4th of July weekend, our client was operating his boat on Lake Conway in Orlando, Florida when he was stopped for a standard safety inspection. After observing our client's bloodshot and watery eyes, poor balance, and numerous empty alcohol containers, officers of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission conducted an investigation for Boating Under the Influence. After performing field sobriety exercises designed for boating cases, our client was arrested and transported to the Orange County Jail where he refused to provide a breath sample. Our client's family and friends record the incident on their cell phones and provided the videos to our attorney. These were the only videos available in the case. After reviewing the reports and the videos our attorney filed a motion to suppress evidence and dismiss the case. Prior to the hearing the State Attorney dismissed all charges against the Defendant. The $500 civil penalty for refusing a breath sample after an arrest for Boating Under the Influence was dismissed as well.
