Our client had been arrested on two separate occasions relative to two DUI’s. In November of 2009, he unlawfully drove a vehicle under the influence of an alcoholic beverage where he was also involved in a crash resulting in damage to another vehicle. At the time of the accident, our client’s blood alcohol level was above .15. In March of 2010, our client was stopped for failing to maintain a single lane and making an abrupt stop at a red light causing the vehicle to bounce. After making contact with the driver the officer noticed a strong odor of alcohol emitting from the person and the vehicle. When the driver was asked to step out of the vehicle, he needed to use the vehicle for support to maintain a standing position. Our client consented to field sobriety exercises, where he had done poorly, however, he had refused the breath test. Our client was arrested and charged with DUI, and transported to the jail for booking.
RESULT: The arrested officer appeared however, he did not make a good witness. The Breath Tech failed to appear and has two business days to present good cause. After diligent negotiations in both cases the client escaped two suspensions, DUI Charges set aside and his driver’s license reinstated!
