Florida Highway Patrol stopped a driver after witnessing him weave in and out of traffic in an unsafe matter. The officer noted the driver smelled of alcohol and exhibited signs of intoxication. The driver refused sobriety testing and subsequently arrested for DUI. The driver then became aggressive with officers, screaming racial and derogatory names. The driver now faces charges of driving under the influence.
RESULT: The defense convinced the State the case lacked evidence to secure a conviction based on the varying degrees of the client’s behavior at the time of the arrest. The defense argued the client had one bad night and is not a repeated lawbreaker. The State reduced the charges resulting in NO DUI CONVICTION!
