My client was arrested for DWI in Manor, Texas by an officer with the Manor Police Department. The officer reported that she stopped my client because he had a license plate light not functioning.
My client REFUSED TO PROVIDE A BREATH TEST. (It was not my clientâ€™s first arrest for DWI) The officer reported that my client had a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath and bloodshot and glassy eyes.
My client also did the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs). The officer said my client exhibited 6 clues of intoxication on the HGN (eye jerking) test. The officer said that my client exhibited 2 clues of intoxication on the Walk & Turn test. The officer said that my client swayed and used his arms for balance 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 offense. This will allow us to have the DWI completely erased from his record.
