DUI & Criminal Division

The Defendant was stopped at a red light and then upon accelerating, never went above 20 mph. The vehicle then accelerated over 60 mph and it was swerving back and forth where it then came to a rolling stop at a red. When making the turn, and after the officer activated his lights, the vehicle was again going 20 mph and then finally stopped. The Defendant had bloodshot/glazed eyes and an odor of alcohol coming from his breath. He had slurred speech and performed poorly on roadsides. He was arrested and taken to the jail where he blew a .160 and .156. The Firm negotiated with the State Attorney’s Office where the State ultimately agreed to dismiss the charges for Driving Under the Influence.
