DUI & Criminal Division

The police were flagged down by a motorist indicating that a car had been stopped in the middle of an intersection for a lengthy period of time. When the officer pulled behind the defendant’s car and turned on his emergency lights, the defendant drove into the wrong lane and headed towards oncoming traffic. Four cars had to swerve out of the way to avoid a collision. When the officer made contact with the defendant, he noticed the odor of alcohol on his breath, his eyes were bloodshot and his speech was slurred. The defendant admitted to drinking 4 beers at a bar that he had left just prior to being pulled over. The defendant refused to perform the roadside exercises. The officer arrested him for DUI and brought him to the BAT facility for a breath test. While at the BAT, the defendant performed poorly on 3 sobriety exercises and refused to take the breath test on video. The firm took the case to trial and jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty.
