Case #: 2***********A**
Client was stopped for running a red light and drifting within his lane. Upon speaking to the client, the officer observed indicators of impairment that included the odor of alcohol and glassy bloodshot eyes. The officer asked the client to perform road side exercises. After exiting the vehicle to perform the exercises, the officer noted that the client was swaying and his speech was mumbled. The client showed several indicators of impairment during the roadside exercises and the exercises had to be stopped because the client was unable to maintain his balance. The client was arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence and refused to take a breath test. Upon discussions with the State Attorney assigned to the case, the Driving Under the Influence charge was reduced to Reckless Driving and the client avoided a further license suspension and criminal conviction on his record.
