DUI & Criminal Division

The Defendant was revoked as a habitual traffic offender for a period of 5 years. An officer observed the Defendant in the driver seat of his vehicle while it was being pushed by another vehicle. They were blocking traffic in the intersection. The officers stopped the vehicles at a gas station and ran the Defendant’s drivers license. The Defendant told the officer that he drove to that location and the car stalled. The Firm argued that the statement was irrelevant and inadmissible and the car was not “capable of operation” at the time of the stop and therefore the State could not prove the charges. The Judge agreed and dismissed the case.
