Two witnesses stated that our client stopped his vehicle in the middle of the road ahead of them, put his car in reverse, and they had to take evasive measures to move out of his way. Officers were called, and as they approached the vehicle, the driver emitted an odor of alcohol and had slurred speech. Our client took part in the field sobriety exercises and performed poorly. He refused the breath test.
RESULT: One witness was subpoenaed, the arresting officer, who notified the Bureau that he could not make it on that date. The hearing officer reset the hearing to accommodate the arresting officer’s calendar. Despite the accommodation, the arresting officer failed to appear at the hearing, and the suspension was lifted.License REINSTATED!
