Case #: 20XXCT0XX0XX0AXX NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant was stopped for running a stop sign. After she was stopped she was asked for her license, registration and insurance. She handed the Officer her Social Security Card as her insurance. She smelled like alcohol, her eyes were bloodshot and glassy was and she was slurring her speech. Initially she said she had nothing to drink, then changed it to one beer. During the investigation, the Defendant fell over onto the floor after stumbling. She refused to submit to roadside exercises and was taken to jail. After being requested to submit to a breath test, she gave two samples of .184 and .173. The Firm hired a Private Investigator after reviewing the videotape of the alleged traffic infraction. The Officer gave inconsistent statements regarding the Defendant running the stop sign. After filing a motion to suppress arguing that the Officer was being less than truthful about what he saw, the judge granted the motion and suppressed all the evidence flowing from the stop. The State of Florida then dropped the charges for Driving Under the Influence.
