DUI & Criminal Division

FHP responded to a crash involving two drivers suspected of DUI and both drivers were later charged with DUI. FHP completed the crash investigation and determined that the other driver that struck our client was at fault. Another Trooper arrived to take over the DUI investigation and he allegedly smelled the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from our client’s breath. The Trooper stated that our client appeared uneasy on his feet and stumbled. His eyes were red, watery, glossy, and bloodshot. After he completed field sobriety exercises, our client was arrested for DUI.  He blew .043 and refused to provide urine. He also admitted to taking Xanax earlier. Our client did not look great on video, but the written report seemed overexaggerated compared to the video. With that discrepancy and other weaknesses in the State’s case, we negotiated an acceptable agreement for our client. We closed his case to Reckless Driving, no points, and no license suspension.
