DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was stopped for traveling the wrong way down a one way street. Officers on foot yelled for our client to stop the vehicle, but he continued on. The officers caught up to our client, drew their weapons and ordered him to step out of the vehicle. He complied. The officers noticed that he had an odor of alcohol on his breath, glassy eyes, and three paper wristbands on his wrist. He was also unsteady on his feet. The officers requested that he perform field sobriety exercises and he refused. He also refused to provide a breath sample. He was then arrested for DUI. We filed a motion to suppress and before the motion was heard, the State dropped the DUI.
