Our client, Patrick, was involved in a single car accident where he crashed into a tree. The Police arrived to the scene and requested that Patrick submit to Field Sobriety Tests. Patrick submitted to Field Sobriety Tests and subsequently to a breathalyzer test. The results were over the legal limit. Patrick was arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and Driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration over .08. Because Patrick submitted to a breathalyzer and his Blood Alcohol Content was over .08, his license was set to be suspended. Once we were hired, we filed a Petition to Rescind the Suspension within the time constraints. After careful review of the discovery, we filed a Motion to Suppress the results of the Breathalyzer arguing that the officers had no probable cause to arrest Patrick, and therefore, the results of the breathalyzer should not be admitted into evidence. The Motion as well as the Petition to Rescind the suspension were granted. Patrick’s suspension was rescinded and both DUI charges were dismissed.
