Our firm was retained by a client who was charged with driving under the influence of drugs. The client was stopped for eratic driving on the highway. The client failed some of the field sobriety tests and admitted that he had taken some prescription medication prior to driving. The client took a breath test that revealed that he had not been drinking. The Police Department had the client interviewed by the Drug Recognition Expert and the client was charged with Driving Under the Influence of Drugs.
DWI Defense Attorney, Gary J. Lauber, was able to present a defense that the client was not Driving While Intoxicated but that he was extremely tired from driving all night on little sleep. We also presented inconsistencies in the police report to show that he was not driving under the influence. The case was dismissed by the state prior to trial.
