Upon the Deputy making contact with the Defendant, he immediately noticed the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. The Defendant’s eyes were also glassy and bloodshot. The Defendant admitted to drinking. The Defendant’s pupils were dilated and took up approximately 90% of his eye. The Deputy then requested the Defendant to perform field sobriety exercises which he initially agreed. The Defendant was unable to stand in the start position for the walk and turn test and decided he no longer wanted to perform the exercises. The Defendant was then arrested for DUI. The Defendant refused to provide a breath sample after being read Florida’s Implied Consent law. Result: The case was set for trial, but before the trial date, the DUI charge was dropped by the State.
