Case #: 2019CT########
The Client was stopped for failing to maintain a single lane. The Officer believed the Client was impaired and had him submit to sobriety exercises. The Client stated he had only had one glass of wine. The Officer then arrested the Client for DUI and took him to jail where he refused to give a breath sample. The Firm investigated the case, and while it was shown that the stop of the Client was proper, there was not very much evidence to show impairment considering the Client refused to give a breath sample. In addition, there was a language barrier for the Client which could have further complicated matters, mistaking confusion for impairment. The State agreed and dismissed the DUI.
