DWI/Leaving the Scene Dismissed


Client was accused of DWI and leaving the scene after allegedly stumbling out of a gas station with a 30 pack of bar and rear-ending a parked car. Police claim he failed all field sobriety tests, became belligerent, and refused a breathalyzer. During a pre-trial hearing attorney Brian Cooke was able to show that the police officer did not correctly administer the field sobriety tests. Furthermore, attorney Cooke was able to argue that there was no probable cause to arrest the client because enough time had lapsed between the alleged driving and arrest that it was impossible to prove the client was intoxicated at the time he was accused of driving.
