DUI & Criminal Division

Law enforcement observed the Defendant driving a new sports car early Saturday morning on the Florida Turnpike. The officer alleged the Defendant was weaving in between traffic at speeds in excess of 100 mph. The Officer also alleged several vehicles were affected by the Defendant including one Fed-Ex truck that was nearly run off the road. After stopping the Defendant, the officer noticed an odor of alcohol and conducted a DUI investigation. Although the Defendant passed the field sobriety exercises, he was still charged with Reckless Driving and willful wanton disregard for people and property. The attorney challenged the validity and legal sufficiency of the officer’s allegations. These challenges included the fact there was no video of the driving or radar/laser reading of the alleged speed. After vigorous negotiations the attorney convinced the state to drop all criminal charges against the defendant.
