Case #: 20XX-XCT-1XX02-O NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant rear ended a car that was stopped at a red light. The defendant told the officer that he had dozed off. The officer suspected the defendant was impaired because he was slurring his words and stumbling around the scene. The officer began a DUI investigation and asked the defendant to perform field sobriety exercises. The defendant explained that he had a bad back, but did the exercises anyway. After performing poorly, he was arrested and taken to jail where he was offered a breath test. He took the test and blew 000 which proves he had no alcohol in his system. The officer then requested a urine sample to prove that the defendant was on drugs. He refused to provide a urine sample. The judge threw the case out half way through the trial beacuse the State Attorney never alleged that the defendant was on a specific drug and they could not rule out fatigue as a reason for the impairment.
