Austell DUI Single Car Accident, .164 Breath Test: Reduced to Reckless Driving

James “Skip” Sullivan represented a person charged with a DUI in Austell after he drove his car up on the railroad tracks right next to the Austell Police Department.  Our client was very cooperative with the Austell DUI officer throughout the DUI investigation.  Due to the weather, the only field sobriety evaluation that was done was the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus evaluation.  Our client was then arrested and read the Georgia Implied Consent Notice.  He agreed to take the state administered breath test on the Intoxilyzer 9000 and blew a .164 – twice the legal limit here in Georgia.  Mr. Sullivan was able to convince the prosecutors in Austell Municipal Court that they would be in for a long court battle in Cobb County State Court over the admissibility of the breath test.  The prosecutors agreed to dismiss the DUI in exchange for a negotiated plea to Reckless Driving and Basic Rules.
