Our Client was arrested and charged with OUI after police observed him make marked lanes violations at 12:20am. Client was asked to step from his vehicle and perform field sobriety tests which he was not able to do to the satisfaction of the officer. He was transported to the station where he consented to a breathalyzer test and registered a .14 BAC, almost double the legal limit. After careful examination of the procedures, we were able to show that the officers failed to follow proper breath test protocol and made a motion to suppress the breathalyzer results. The breath test was suppressed and the case was later tried before a jury and the client was found NOT GUILTY.
