CHARGE: DUI (Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol - BAC over 0.15)
POLICE REPORT:
Police responded to a 911 call reporting a suspected drunk driver operating erratically. Upon arrival, the police observed the Client’s vehicle stopped along the side of the road turning its lights off.  The Police, confirming that the Client’s vehicle matched the vehicle identified by the 911 caller, turned on their overhead lights and pulled behind the Client’s vehicle.  The Police approached the Client’s vehicle and observed the Client to have severely bloodshot, watery eyes and a strong odor of alcohol emanating from her breath.  They requested her to submit to standardized field sobriety testing which she failed.  Based on those observations, the Police placed the Client under arrest and at the station requested her to submit to the breathalyzer.  The Client submitted to the breath test resulting in readings of 0.154 and 0.160, twice the legal limit.  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 45 day suspension of license July 9th, 2012
