Alachua County Driver has License Suspension Invalidated
An Officer from the Gainesville Police Department responded to 1712 W University Avenue in reference to a vehicle crash. When the officer made contact with the driver of one of the vehicles, he noticed an odor of alcohol, bloodshot and glazed eyes, as well as slurred speech. During the official investigation he notices the driver was unsteady on her feet and was having mood swings. The driver was placed under arrest and was transported to North Florida Regional Medical Center were a blood sample was requested and the driver refused. The driver received a DUI citation and her license was suspended for refusing to provide a blood sample.
The driver hired Meldon Law. The attorneys at Meldon Law filed an application for a Formal Review Hearing through the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle (DHSMV) to challenge the basis of the driver’s license suspension. During the hearing, the attorney from Meldon Law made a motion to invalidate the license suspension. The hearing officer later issued an order setting aside the license suspension.
