Great results on DUI charge from Chicago

Posted by John Callahan | Jan 29, 2013 | 0 Comments

In summary, a Chicago Police Office arrested out client, M.G., for coming out of a liquor store, entering his vehicle and attempting to drive away.
According to the officer, out client drove up on the sidewalk with both right tires and when the officers stopped our client, he then drove another 6 feet until both tires were on the street. The officers approached our client and asked him to get out of the vehicle. They stated that he could not get out of the vehicle without using the car for support.The officers noted a strong odor of alcohol on his breath, and bloodshot, glassy eyes. Out client took the horizontal gaze nystagmus test and failed it with a 6 point. He also failed the walk and turn test by not being able to walk touching heel to toe, keep his balance and turn correctly. The officer also concluded that he failed the one leg stand test. When asked to do a finger to nose test, our client refused to perform that test. The officer placed our client under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol, driving on the sidewalk and failing to keep in his own line of traffic. We were able to get the driving under the influence of alcohol charge reduced to a reckless driving charge. The other two charges were dismissed. Our client received a period of court supervision and has no conviction to report.
