DUI & Criminal Division

On November 12th, 2012, a Tampa Police Officer observed the Defendant’s vehicle weaving within his lane and cross the center lane maker. The officer then initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle for suspicion of DUI. When the officer came into contact with the Defendant, he noticed an odor of an alcoholic beverage. The Defendant was requested to perform field sobriety exercises, which he agreed. After the officer noticed several clues of impairment, the Defendant was placed under arrest for DUI. The Defendant refused to provide a breath sample unless his lawyer was present. He was read Florida’s Implied Consent law and booked as refusing to submit to a breath test. Result: The firm pointed out legal issues with the initial stop and the field sobriety exercises of the Defendant, and the State agreed to drop the DUI charge.
