Case #: 2XXXM00XXXX33AXX NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant was traveling almost 30 miles over the speed limit in the rain and making wide turns while weaving within her lanes several times and swerving. After being stopped, the officer noticed an odor of alcohol, slurred speech and bloodshot/glassy eyes. She stated she was coming from the airport and had consumed a glass of wine. While trying to get her documents, she stumbled and was swaying when out of the car. She then refused to submit to roadside tasks and was arrested for DUI. While being transported, the Defendant got out of her handcuffs and threw them across the backseat. She eventually agreed to submit to a breath test where she blew over a .15 (almost twice the legal limit). The Firm, after numerous negotiations, was able to convince the State Attorney’s Office to dismiss the charges for DUI.
