Case #: Volusia #######-MMDL
Client was involved in a single car accident and was observed at the scene to have watery eyes, a slow & slurred speech pattern, and an overwhelming odor of alcohol on his person. He refused both FSEs and a breath test, and was arrested for DUI. Through defense counsel's investigation it was discovered that the Client suffered from a seizure disorder in which the symptoms of a seizure closely mimicked those of intoxication. Defense counsel provided proof of this condition to the State, as well as statements from family members describing how the seizures appeared to an outside observer, and the DUI was dismissed.
