Thomas & Paulk Represent Man Accused of DUI; Charged Reduced

In a recent case, our Tampa criminal defense lawyers represented a client who was stopped for allegedly weaving in traffic on Howard Ave. The officer from the Tampa Police Department claimed he noticed the odor of alcohol on our client and that our client had glassy, bloodshot eyes. The officer than had our client perform field sobriety exercises and claimed that our client showed signs of impairment on all of those exercises. Finally, the officer asked our client to take a breath test and our client refused.

After reviewing all the evidence in the case and preparing the case for trial, the State Attorney's office agreed to drop the DUI charges to reckless driving. This is not the first time that we have been successful in helping a client to emerge victorious in a case involving drunk driving.
