DUI & Criminal Division

The Defendant was driving without his headlights at 2:00 a.m. and was traveling at a high rate of speed. After being stopped, the officer noticed he had bloodshot, glassy eyes and slurred speech. The Defendant stated it was not dark out and could not find his license. The officer had to tell him it was on his lap. He was asked to perform roadsides and performed poorly. He admitted to having 2 or 3 drinks and was arrested. He was arrested and gave a breath sample of a .197 and .187 at the jail. Additionally, he admitted that he was under the influence and could kind of feel the effects of the alcohol he drank. The Firm was able to reinstate the Defendant’s driving privileges at the administrative level. The State of Florida after plea negotiations with the firm agreed to dismiss the charges for DUI.
