DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was stopped for making several wide turns, weaving from lane to lane, and stopping in the middle of an intersection. Upon making contact with the defendant, the officer noticed the defendant to have an odor of an alcoholic beverage, red bloodshot and watery eyes, slurred speech and difficulty with his movements and handling vehicle documentation. The defendant was asked to perform roadside sobriety exercises and did so poorly. The defendant was arrested and submitted to a breath test and refused a urine test. The State dropped all charges after the firm notified the Office of the State Attorney that it would be unable to prove the substance by which the defendant was impaired.
