DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was driving his car when he rear ended a vehicle causing a crash. When the officer arrived on scene he noticed that the defendant had slurred speech and he seemed out of it. After letting the defendant go and citing him for the accident, the defendant rear ended another vehicle causing another crash 20 minutes later. The same officer from the first crash arrived on scene where he noticed that the defendant was significantly more out of it. The mother of the defendant was called to the scene where she told the officer that he does not look right and seems like he is impaired by something. The defendant admitted to smoking marijuana that morning and was arrested for driving under the influence of controlled substances. While at the BAT facility, he was asked to submit to a urine test. The toxicology report came back with THC (marijuana) and other controlled substances in his system. On the date of trial, after taking the deposition of the officer, the State dropped the DUI charge.
