Case #: 2XXXCXXT00XX67 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was charged with Driving Under the influence of Alcohol. The defendant was driving his motorcycle after leaving the bar and crashed. He had road rash and admitted to drinking a bucket of beers. The officer in the case stated that the defendant was slurring his speech, was disoriented, was staggering while he was walking, and allegedly told the officer that he probably should not have been driving. The defendant then gave a breath sample over the limit. The firm set the case for trial. On the day of trial, the Firm showed where the officer’s credibility was impeached by showing that the video in the case showed none of the signs of impairment that the officer alleged. In addition, the Firm located the EMT who treated the defendant’s wounds, and the EMT testified that he was alert and well oriented and if he had had a drink or two he could have fooled him. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty.
