Port Wentworth DUI Arrest
Lance was driving home with his wife. A Port Wentworth police officer got behind him and followed him for about five miles. He was pulled over for Failure to maintain lane. The police officer wrote in his report that “the black BMW crossed the lane lines several times.” The officer walked up to his window.
He did the field sobriety tests and got arrested for DUI. At the station he blew a .111% on the Intoxilyzer 5000. He was shocked because he knew he wasn’t drunk. He needed his license to make a living and support his family. We challenged the license suspension. We brought a certified court reporter to make a solid record to use later on at the criminal case. At the hearing, I cross-examined the cop. One thing lead to another and the officer didn’t satisfy the burden of proof for the Administrative Law Judge. The suspension was denied. Lance walked away and drove while his DUI charges were pending in the State Court of Chatham County.
