My client was stopped for changing lanes without using his turn signal. He was arrested in Austin, Texas for DWI by the Austin Police Department.
My client PROVIDED A BREATH TEST. My client stated that he didnâ€™t know he could refuse the tests. He provided two breath specimens with a reported BAC of .170 and .173.
The officer reported that my client had a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath. The officer reported that he had bloodshot, glassy and dilated eyes.
We appealed the so called “automatic” suspension of his driver’s license. We filed discovery requests and subpoenaed all the officers involved to justify our client’s arrest and the suspension.
We were successful in keeping our client’s license from being suspended. We were able to get his ALR Hearing DISMISSED.
