Police witnessed a vehicle drift in between lanes. The Officer initiated a stop and noticed the Defendant had slurred speech, difficulty standing and smelled of alcohol. The Defendant failed Field Sobriety Testing and submitted to a Breathalyzer Test. The Defendant blew .174 & .176; both readings were well over the legal limit of .08. The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles suspended the Defendant’s license.
RESULT: The Defense requested a Formal Administrative Review Hearing of the Client’s suspended license with the Department of Motor Vehicles. The Attorney subpoenaed the arresting Officer and the Breathalyzer Technician. The Attorney proved the case lacked evidence to support the Client had an illegal blood/alcohol limit of .08 or higher. The Department of Motor Vehicles LIFTED the suspension of the Client’s license.
