Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) – License Suspension Removed
My client’s vehicle was weaving back and forth on the road. The Mount Prospect Police Department pulled him over. He admitted to consuming numerous beers earlier in the evening. He had bloodshot and glassy eyes. After performing the field sobriety tests, my client blew a .128% into the portable breath test. He was then arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. At the police station my client blew a .121% into the breathalyzer. We filed a petition to rescind his license suspension with the court and scheduled a hearing date. The officer testified that he believed my client to be under the influence from the results of the field tests and the portable breath test. My office cross-examined the officer and proved that he did much better on the tests than the officer originally testified to. We also showed that the portable breath test was not very reliable. The judge agreed to remove the license suspension after the hearing.
