DUI & Criminal Division

On July 14, 2011, a Hillsborough County Sheriff Deputy observed a white Nissan eastbound on Adamo Dr. traveling at 68 mph in a 50 mph zone. The vehicle was also swerving in and out of traffic. The Deputy initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle and made contact with the driver and sole occupant, the Defendant. The Defendant identified himself verbally because he did not have a DL on him. The Deputy observed the Defendant have red, watery eyes, slurred speech, and odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath. In the passenger seat were a bottle of wine and a six pack of beer. There was an additional half full bottle spilling onto the floor. The defendant was observed to be unsteady on his feet when exiting the vehicle. The Deputy requested field sobriety exercises, which the Defendant did not consent to do, instead repeatedly asking what he did wrong. The Defendant was arrested and transported to central breath testing. The Defendant refused to submit to a breath test after being explained the implied consent law. The Defendant has also issued citations for speeding, open container, and no proof of DL. Results: The firm convinced the State to drop the DUI charge based on lack of evidence.
