DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was charged with Felony DUI and Carrying a Concealed Weapon. The defendant was observed driving through an inoperable traffic signal immediately after Hurricane Wilma. The officer followed the defendant to the driveway of his home and saw the defendant slowly exit his vehicle and then ordered him to remain in the driveway so a DUI investigator could be called to the scene. The DUI investigator noticed several indicators of impairment including an odor of alcohol, flushed face, bloodshot watery eyes and an inability to maintain his balance. The defendant refused all exercises and the breath test. The Ticket Clinic filed a motion to suppress the seizure in his driveway, which was granted. State dropped all charges.
