Officers stopped a driver for traveling 15 mph over the posted speed limit. The driver admitted to the police that he had consumed four beers earlier in the evening. He failed field sobriety testing and refused to participate in a breath test. Officers arrested the defendant for DUI and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles immediately suspended his license.
RESULT: The defense requested a formal administrative review hearing on the suspension of the client’s license. The hearing officer ruled that the arresting officer lacked probable cause to initiate the stop. The attorney prevailed and the client’s license was REINSTATED!
