DUI & Criminal Division

On 8/19/12 at approximately 9:37, the Defendant was stopped for speeding and weaving within his lane. A Spanish speaking DUI investigator was called to the scene after the initial trooper noticed an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the Defendant’s breath. The Defendant also claimed to not speak English fluently once he was requested to perform field sobriety exercises even though he had previously spoken English with the initial stop officer. When the DUI officer arrived, he could smell a moderate odor of an alcoholic beverage from the Defendant’s breath. The Defendant explained that he was swerving because he was using his cell phone and that he had not had anything to drink. The Defendant’s eyes were bloodshot and watery and his speech was slurred. The Defendant agreed to perform field sobriety exercises and exhibited multiple clues of impairment on the exercises. The Defendant was then arrested for DUI. After being placed under arrest, the Defendant refused to provide a breath sample. The Defendant was read Florida’s Implied Consent law and also explained the Commercial driver’s license disqualification for refusing a breath test. The Defendant still refused to provide a sample. Results: The firm set the case for trial and on the morning of trial, the State dropped the DUI charge.
