DeKalb County DUI: Refusal, 5th Lifetime Arrest for DUI, 1 Prior Conviction – DUI Dismissed

Client was speeding and weaving within his lane in Doraville when he was pulled over by an Officer from the Doraville Police Department. Officer noted that client had very slurred speech, he smelled like alcohol, was unsteady on his feet, and he had bloodshot and glassy eyes. Client did not want to perform field sobriety evaluations and he did not want to submit to a chemical test, and he was subsequently arrested. State refused to dismiss the DUI, so the case was set for a motion hearing. Although the Judge denied all of our motions, the State realized that there was not going to be enough evidence for a jury to convict, so the DUI charge was dismissed. Client entered a plea to Reckless Driving and was thrilled that we kept him out of jail, saved his license, and avoided a conviction for DUI.
