On the morning of the trial, prosecutors reduced the DUI charge to reckless driving.
Troy was a local college basketball player, and concerned that he would be suspended from the team. More importantly, Troy was worried that the arrest would affect his graduation from college and future career.
Troy S. was driving home from a night in downtown Fort Lauderdale with his friends when the new Fort Lauderdale DUI task force pulled him over for swerving into another lane. Troy agreed to the field sobriety exercises, which he completed without any major problems. Despite his good performance on the sobriety exercises, the officer still arrested him for a DUI. Troy refused a breath test and refused any further cooperation.
When we reviewed the body camera footage, it did not match up to the police report. We took depositions, or interviews under oath, of the officers who were present at the scene of the investigation. Their statements revealed inconsistencies between their memory and their reports, often changing or questioning what had happened during Troy’s arrest. We also filed a motion to suppress all evidence in this case saying the police illegally stopped Troy for failure to maintain in a single lane, as the reported swerving was minimal and allowable under the law.
