Case #: 20XX-MXXM-3XX5 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was pulled over after a concerned citizen notified the police that they were driving drunk. The officer pulled him over for driving 7 miles an hour over the speed limit. When he approached the defendant, he noticed and odor of alcohol, bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a cup of tequila in plain view. He asked the driver to perform field sobriety exercises to determine if he was impaired. The defendant complied and was arrested after the officer claimed he performed poorly. He was taken to jail after he refused to take a breath test. Our firm filed a motion to suppress the field sobriety exercises. On the morning the motions were to be heard, the state dropped the DUI.
