DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was observed by an officer to be speeding and twice leaving his lane of travel. A traffic stop was initiated and the stopping officer noticed the defendant to have an odor of alcoholic beverage about his breath, bloodshot watery eyes and slurred speech. The DUI investigator confirmed those observations and requested that the defendant perform roadside sobriety exercises. The defendant performed poorly during the exercises and blew .080/.082 on the intoxylizer. The State dropped the DUI charges.
