Charge: Operating Under the Influence
Result: OUI- Dismissed; Cop did not show up
Police responded to a report and found the client passed out in his car with the engine running. Officer immediately detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from the client’s breath, and observed his eyes to be bloodshot. Client admitted to having three beers when asked, and his speech was slurred when answering questions. Officer administered a series of field sobriety tests. Client failed all assessments and was placed under arrest.
This case is yet another example of trying everything we can to defend a case and something good happens, like the officer not showing up for the trial date.
