Case #: 20XX-CXXT-3XX4 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was driving his 2000 Ford Pickup when he lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle flipped multiple times and ended up on its side. The defendant was trapped in the vehicle. Firefighters responded and used the jaws of life to free the defendant from the vehicle. Once free, they noticed a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and bloodshot eyes. He was taken to the hospital where he admitted to drinking too much and told the Trooper that he was drunk. Based on those factors, the Trooper took a sample of blood which indicated an impairment level of twice the legal limit. Our firm advised the State that there were some holes in their case. After reviewing the issues we brought to their attention, the State dropped the DUI.
