DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was observed weaving in and out of his lane of travel and driving with an expired tag and was stopped by an officer from the Davie Police Department. Upon making contact with the defendant, the officer noticed that the defendant had an odor of an alcoholic beverage, bloodshot watery eyes, slurred speech and a flushed face. The defendant kept stating to the officer that he was a firefighter over and over again, which he was not. The officer called the fire chief to the scene and it was proven that the defendant was definitely not a firefighter. The defendant refused to perform the roadside tasks and refused a breath test. The defendant also admitted that he said he was a firefighter in order to avoid being arrested for DUI. Acquitted by jury of all charges.
