CHARGE: DUI (Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol - BAC over 0.15)
POLICE REPORT:
Police responded to a 911 call reporting a motor vehicle accident. Upon arrival, the police noted that the Client's motor vehicle had skidded off the road and struck a commercial building. While speaking with the Client, the police observed the Client to have bloodshot and watery eyes, slurred speech, and a strong odor of alcohol emanating from the Client's breath. Based on the poor road conditions, the Client was transported to the police station where standardized field sobriety tests were conducted. The Client failed the SFST's and consented to a breath test for the presence of alcohol. Two readings were obtained from the Client with both readings registering 0.216 on the breathalyzer, nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08. The Client was then charged with DUI (driving under the influence with BAC over 0.150).
RESULT: REDUCED TO RECKLESS DRIVING and placed on File for one year (not a criminal conviction) with a 30 day suspension of license March 26th, 2012
