DUI & Criminal Division
In this case, an officer from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission observed a vessel exceeding the speed limit in a slow speed zone. Upon stopping the vessel, the officer discovered Coors Light beer cans inside the personal watercraft’s front hatch. During questioning, the officer asked the defendant about alcohol consumption, and the defendant admitted to drinking beer. Subsequently, the defendant participated in seated standardized field sobriety tests aboard the officer’s vessel, where the officer noticed a distinct smell of alcohol. Based on the results of the field sobriety tests and the officer’s observations, the defendant was arrested for Boating Under the Influence (BUI). Following the arrest, the defendant provided a breath sample. Fortunately, the Ticket Clinic lawyers intervened, skillfully negotiating with the state to ultimately persuade them to drop the charges.
