DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was seen sleeping at the wheel of his vehicle by a civilan witness while at a traffic light. The officer responded to the scene, approached the vehicle, noticed that it was running and that the defendant’s foot was on the brake. The officer was unable to wake the defendant even by the use of his air horn on his vehicle or by the use of his emergency lights. The defendant would not wake up even when the officer shook him and screamed directly into his ear. When the Defendant finally woke up, he had slow and lethargic movements, a strong odor of alcohol, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. The defendant admitted that he was arrested a few nights before this incident for another DUI. The defendant was asked to perform roadside sobriety exercises and did so poorly. He then submitted to a breath test that resulted in a reading of .191/.199 g/210L, more than two times the legal limit. All DUI charges were dropped by the State of Florida.
