DUI Crash with High Blood Alcohol Level Reduced; no conviction! - DUI
Client alleged to crash her car into a tree. When paramedics arrived they took a blood sample. The police obtained an arrest warrant for DUI with enhanced blood alcohol level when the blood returned from the lab .236, almost three times the legal limit. Although the affidavit to obtain the warrant asserted client was seen in the vehicle, the first officer on the scene could not remember where the client was when he arrived. Without proof of the client as driver and a potentially false warrant affidavit, the State reduced the charge to Reckless Driving with no conviction.
