DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was pulled over for driving on a flat tire. The officer approached the vehicle and immediately smelled alcohol. He also noticed our client’s speech was slurred and his eyes were bloodshot. He requested that our client perform field sobriety exercises. Our client refused to do them and also refused to provide a breath sample. He was then arrested. Our firm researched this case and found the same officer conducted the same illegal stop of a vehicle years earlier. In this case, our client pulled into a business to inspect his tire prior to the officer pulling him over. There was no reason for the officer to detain him. Once this was brought to the prosecutor’s attention, all charges were dismissed
