DUI & Criminal Division

According to the police, they observed the Defendant driving at a high rate of speed. They caught up to him and observed the Defendant erratically drifting through lanes, almost striking the center median. The officer conducted a traffic stop. The Defendant was immediately aggressive and argumentative with the officer. The officer noticed signs that the Defendant may be impaired such as bloodshot eyes and the odor of alcohol coming from his breath. The officer asked the Defendant to perform roadside exercises, and the Defendant performed poorly on all of them. The officer arrested him, and the Defendant refused to perform a breath test. The attorney for the firm investigated the case, and concluded that the detention of the Defendant was unlawful. He filed a motion to suppress most of the evidence in the case. Rather than argue the motion, the State dropped the DUI case.
