Atlanta DUI — reduced to reckless driving

Our corporate executive client was pulled over by the Atlanta Police Department after she ran a red light, failed to maintain her lane, and drove straight through an intersection while in a left-turn-only lane.  When our client pulled over, she accidentally put the car in reverse, and had to be instructed by the officer over a loud speaker to put her car in park.  When she got out of the car, the police officer made special note that her pants were unbuttoned and unzipped.  No HGN was performed, and she scored a 6/8 on the walk and turn, and a 3/4 on the one leg stand.  She refused breath testing.  Our investigation revealed a complete lack of training by the Atlanta DUI officers on scene, and the prosecution eventually offered a reduction to reckless driving.
