Judge-“No Probable Cause to Arrest-Case Dismissed”

Posted Monday, May 5, 2014 by Andrew Charles Huff

A major victory for a client charged with Driving Under the Influence in Tacoma recently. The arresting officer made a valid traffic stop based upon a minor infraction. However, client exited the vehicle and walked towards the officer with no problems, and performed well enough on the Field Sobriety Tests. Client was not slurring and did not appear confused.

The key here was the Field Sobriety Tests. Although the client exhibited a few clues, her overall performance was very good. The judge summarized his ruling by looking at the entire picture or the evidence as a whole. While there was evidence of drinking, not so for impairment. We win!
