DUI & Criminal Division

On January 30, 2011 at 2:57 am, a Tampa Police Officer observed the Defendant driving on Kennedy Blvd. After following the Defendant for a short distance, the Officer initiated a traffic stop for weaving and drifting within her lane. Upon making contact, the officer noted a distinct odor of alcohol on the Defendant’s breath. The Defendant’s eyes were bloodshot and she had an unsteady appearance. Field sobriety exercises were performed unsatisfactorily and the Defendant was arrested for DUI. The Defendant provided a breath sample of .133 and .129. The firm filed a motion to suppress the breath test and field sobriety exercises based on an illegal detention. Result: Before the motion could be heard, the State dropped the DUI charge.
