Officers were called to the scene of a traffic crash. A driver collided with a tree causing the vehicle’s airbags to deploy and uprooting the tree. The passengers of the automobile removed the driver and brought him into a residence for help. The passengers attempted to cover for the defendant, but the officers suspected foul play and DUI. After EMS treatment, the defendant refused a breath test and was arrested.
RESULT: The defense requested a formal administrative review hearing questioning the suspension of the client’s license. The attorney proved that the police lacked sufficient evidence to determine that the client was in actual, physical control of the vehicle while under the influence.LICENSE REINSTATED!
