Case #: 2XXXT02XXX85AXX NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant was seen by a clerk in a store walking into shelves and stumbling all over the place. He was not able to keep his balance and was heavily intoxicated. The clerk told a police officer not to let him drive and the officer tried to stop him but the Defendant ignored him and got in his car to speed away. The Defendant then ran multiple stop signs and failed to maintain a lane. The Defendant drove 2 blocks while the lights were activated. The officer finally stopped him and upon contact the Defendant smelled like alcohol and had numerous signs of impairment. The Defendant just sat there when asked for his license and looked to be in a stupor. He was argumentative and refused to submit to roadsides. After being arrested he refused to submit to a breath test. The Firm had numerous conferences with the State Attorney’s Office regarding the video evidence in the case along with the issues proving the prior refusal. After numerous conversations, the State of Florida agreed to dismiss the charges for DUI and Refusal to Submit.
