Driving home from dinner with friends, a recent transplant to Nashville was stopped by a police officer due to a traffic violation. The officer smelled a slight odor of alcohol coming from inside the car full of people, so he asked the driver to submit to field sobriety tests. She complied. The officer later decided to arrest her for DUI; she was also charged with violating the implied consent law for not agreeing to a breath alcohol test.
Bryan obtained the dash cam video and reviewed it. The client had performed quite well on the field sobriety tests. Bryan knew that the uncontroverted evidence contained in the video would benefit his client, so he set up an appointment with the ADA. In this way, he could highlight some of the discrepancies between the video, and what the police officer swore to in the affidavit. The ADA agreed that the case for DUI was weak, and the DUI charge was dismissed.
