Case #: 2020-CT-***9 – DUI and Leaving the Scene of an Accident
Our client was involved in a vehicle accident in an apartment complex and then continued driving about 150 feet from the scene of the crash. According to the report, the accident resulted in another parked car's rear window imploding. The police officer who arrived on scene noticed signs of impairment. Roadside exercises were offered but our client refused. After the arrest a breath sample was taken, which showed a result of .251. Due to the administrative rule requiring 2 breath samples, we pointed out to the State that the result would be inadmissible. The state agreed, dropped the DUI to reckless driving and completely dropped the leaving the scene charge as well.
