Facts: Client's car was called in by a concerned motorist who indicated that the client was driving "all over the road". Client was stopped by the Sheriff's Department and ultimately arrested for OUI. Client admitted to drinking and performed poorly on the field sobriety tests. Client blew a .17%. During our background check on the deputy we learned that the deputy's Intoxilyzer certification had expired, which resulted in the invalidation of the test results.
Result: BMV suspension rescinded and client pled guilty to a Driving to Endanger charge for a fine of $575.00 and a suspension of his privileges for 30 days.
