Hit and Run, Leaving The Scene, Failed Field Sobriety Test…

Police receive a call from  a local restaurant indicating that a truck hit a light pole while exiting the parking lot and then left the scene.  Client is stopped a short time later and the police officer immediately detects a strong odor of alcohol emanating from the vehicle.  Client’s eyes appear blood shot, he admits to having a ”couple of drinks” when asked, and he is unable to offer an explanation for the damage to his vehicle.  Client submits to the typical battery of Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (HGN, One Leg Stand, Walk and Turn) and allegedly fails them all.  Prior to trial, the defense demonstrates several problems with the arresting officer’s administration of the FSTs resulting in a reduced charge.  VERDICT: DWI COMPLAINT DISMISSED.
