My client was arrested for DWI in Austin, Texas by an officer with the Austin Police Department. The officer reported that my client was stopped because she was speeding and failed to use her turn signal.
My client PROVIDED A BLOOD TEST, and performed the standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs).
The officer reported that my client had an odor of alcohol coming from her breath and her eyes were watery and glassy. The officer said my client exhibited 6 clues of intoxication on the HGN (eye jerking) test. The officer said that my client exhibited 5 of the 8 clues of intoxication on the Walk & Turn test. The officer said that my client swayed, used her arms for balance and put her foot down on the One Leg Stand test.
We took the case to court and let the State know we were going to fight the case. Eventually, the prosecutor agreed to DISMISS THE DWI and my client plead to a Non-DWI charge with a small fine.
