DUI & Criminal Division

The Defendant ran a red light in front of oncoming traffic and was driving 80 mph in a 35 mph zone. The Defendant had glassy red eyes and denied drinking any alcohol even though he smelled like it. He then admitted to drinking 2 vodkas. A DUI unit responded and noticed that the defendant had mumbled and “very slurred” speech. He was asked if he wanted to perform roadside tasks to which he refused. He was told that the refusal would be held against him in court and he still refused them. He was arrested and in the back of the car continually cursed over and over again. He was transported to the breath facility where he refused to submit a sample of his breath. The Firm spoke with the intake department at the State Attorney’s office after retrieving the roadside and jail videos very quickly. After speaking with them about the inconsistencies in the videos and the reports, the State of Florida agreed to drop the charges for Driving Under the Influence.
