Case #: CT-009XXX NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was seen pulling out of a bar parking lot at about 12:30 am. She was stopped for failing to maintain a single lane after the Deputy saw her passenger side rear wheel touch the outer edge of the outermost lane 3 times. Upon contact with the Defendant, the Deputy noticed slurred speech and difficulty maintaining her balance. A DUI investigator was called to the scene. The DUI investigator noted an odor of an alcoholic beverage on the Defendant’s breath, bloodshot and glassy eyes and slurred speech. The Defendant performed field sobriety exercises unsatisfactorily and was arrested. The Defendant was taken to Central Breath Testing where her breath test results were .175/.174. The firm filed a motion to suppress the results of the field sobriety and breath tests. The Judge, based on the testimony and legal argument by the firm at the motion hearing, granted the motion and dismissed the DUI charge.
