Client was arrested by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in a Florida state park. He was cited for DUI, DUI with property damage after he had crashed into a park bench. He also failed to pay the fee to enter the park and was cited with an additional traffic citation. Officers had noted a strong odor of alcoholic beverage, slurred speech, allegedly admitted to drinking, could not stand without assistance. It appears that he refused the field sobriety exercises but took the breath test with a result of .291, nearly four times the legal limit.
RESULT: The arresting agency failed to provide an arrest packet to the Bureau of Administrative Reviews. One of our attorneys attended the formal administrative review hearing, and moved to invalidate the suspension based upon no evidence to support it, where the motion was granted. The suspension was removed from the clients driving record and he is eligible for a duplicate license.
