We got the charges against Amanda reduced to reckless driving.
Amanda is a director at a local pet shelter and frequently runs community based charity events and promotions. She was worried that a DUI would ruin her career and credibility as a charitable fundraiser.
Amanda C. was pulled over by police in Pompano Beach for having an expired tag. In the police report the officer claimed he smelled alcohol when he pulled her over, and that she was lethargic and her speech was slurred. That’s when the DUI investigation started. The officer asked Amanda to perform the field sobriety exercises. Amanda said to the officer, “aren’t you supposed to say ‘no’ to a DUI check?” The officer then informed her that the exercises were voluntary but if she didn’t perform them he would have to make a judgment call on the DUI arrest based solely upon his observations. Amanda then agreed to perform the exercises and failed. The officer arrested her for DUI and asked her for a breath and urine sample because, according to the police report, the officer “could not detect an odor of alcoholic beverage due to windy conditions at the scene.” Amanda refused to give a sample and was taken down to the station.
We found major discrepancies between the DUI video and police reports. Amanda was very bubbly and alert throughout the process, as opposed to “slow and lethargic” which is what the police reports stated. She asked very intelligent questions during the investigation, which shows that her mental faculties were not impaired, and she also had very good balance.
