On March 25th, 2009 my client was arrested for driving under the influence in Tampa, FL. The officer alleged that my client ran a red light, almost strike the curb of the median, drifting in and out of the lane, and slow to respond to the officer’s lights to pull over. When the officer asked my client to exit the vehicle, he could smell the odor of marijuana coming from the car. He noticed that my client was unsteady, staggering while walking, and swaying. The officer asked my client to conduct filed sobriety exercises, which he stated showed clues of impairment. My client was then arrested and taken to jail.
I was able to convince the State Attorney to drop the Driving Under the Influence charge because he could not prove what my client was impaired by. The alcohol breath test in the case came back negative. However, the officers also requested a urine sample which was not analyzed in time. Based on this information, the State Attorney agreed with my assertion and dismissed the DUI charge.
If you get charged with a DUI call Tampa DUI Attorney Mustafa Ameen immediately to protect your rights.
