DUI & Criminal Division

The Defendant was stopped traveling 30 mph over the speed limit. The vehicle did not stop right away and finally after ¼ of a mile did. Additionally, the officer noticed a strong odor of alcohol and had slurred speech. He also noticed he was disoriented. A DUI unit was called and that officer noticed red/bloodshot eyes and an odor of alcohol coming from him. He said he was just “heading home.” He admitted to having 1 beer after denying moments ago that he had been drinking. He then refused to do roadside exercises and was arrested. After being taken to the jail, he refused to provide a breath sample. The Firm watched the videos and noticed glaring issues in the case regarding the officers purposely turning off the video and destroying evidence in the case. The State of Florida reviewed the entire case and agreed not to file any criminal charges against the Defendant.
