My client was arrested for DWI in Georgetown, Williamson County, Texas by an officer with the Georgetown Police Department. The officer reported that my client was stopped because he was weaving as he drove down the highway.
My client PROVIDED A BREATH TEST. My client didnâ€™t know he could refuse the tests. He provided two breath specimens with a reported BAC of .131 and .139. The officer reported that my client had a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy.
My client also did the FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS (SFSTs). The Officer said my client exhibited all 6 clues of intoxication on the HGN (eye jerking) test. The Officer said that my client displayed 3 of the 8 clues of intoxication on the Walk & Turn test. The Officer said that my client was not able to hold his foot up for the requested length of time 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. We were also able to keep his driver’s license from being suspended in the ALR process.
