My client was arrested for DWI in Austin, Texas by an officer with the Austin Police Department. The officer reported that he came into contact with my client because he was involved in a collision.
My client PROVIDED A BREATH TEST. My client didnâ€™t know he could refuse the tests. The officer reported that my client had a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath and bloodshot and glassy eyes. He provided two breath specimens with a reported BAC of .098 and .096.
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 3 clues of intoxication on the Walk & Turn test. The officer said that my client put his 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 offense. This will allow us to have the DWI completely erased from his record.
