My client was arrested for DWI in Sunset Valley, Texas by an officer with the Sunset Valley Police Department. The officer reported that my client was stopped for driving at night with one headlight out.
My client knew her rights and REFUSED THE BREATH TEST AND THE STANDARDIZED FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS (SFSTS).
The officer reported that my client emitted a strong odor of alcohol from her breath, had bloodshot, glassy eyes and confused speech. Due to her total refusal, the officer had to arrest my client based solely on this information.
We took the case to court and let the State know that we were going to fight. Eventually the prosecutor agreed to DISMISS THE DWI and my client pled to a minor traffic ticket for having no headlight.
