DUI & Criminal Division

An officer observed the defendant run a stop sign at John Young Circle in Hollywood, FL. and then fail to maintain his lane, almost causing an accident with another vehicle. The defendant failed to pull over for two blocks. The officer noticed the defendant to have an odor of alcohol, bloodshot, watery eyes and slurred speech. The defendant had difficulty exiting the vehicle and was unsteady on his feet. He was lethargic and used his vehicle for balance while walking. The defendant performed poorly on roadside sobriety exercises and blew a .247/.257 on the intoxylizer, over three times the legal limit. The judge did not allow the case to go to the jury and entered a directed verdict in favor of the defendant, the functional equivalent of a dismissal.
