Client was involved in a rear end collision. When the police arrived, he fled the scene. The officers detained his friend and made the friend call the client and tell him to return. When our client returned, the officers noticed he had alcohol on his breath, bloodshot eyes, and slurred speech. After conducting a DUI investigation, the officers arrested our client for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident.
Our firm thought the case was very strong. We pushed the case to trial. Before the trial, the state dropped both cases.
