Bradford County DUI Charge Reduced
A Florida Highway Patrol Trooper responded to a single-vehicle crash on State Road 100. The Trooper observed that the driver was still in the vehicle, and once the driver was removed, the Trooper observed the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage. The driver indicated that the inhabitants of the car were coming from a sports pub. Bradford County Sheriff’s deputies also located beer cans and liquor bottles in the vehicle.
The driver was transported to UF Health Shands Hospital. While at the hospital, the Trooper could again smell an alcohol odor coming from the driver, and the Trooper observed the driver’s bloodshot and watery eyes. The driver’s blood was obtained, indicating a BAC of .171. Ultimately the driver was charged with DUI and DUI property damage.
The driver hired Meldon Law. The Meldon Law attorney sent a written formal request highlighting why the driver should be considered for the DUI Deferral Program. Ultimately the driver was approved and was allowed to participate in the DUI Deferral Program. The driver completed the program successfully, which resulted in the DUI charge being reduced to a reckless driving charge. Similarly, the DUI property damage charge was dropped, and the civil citation for careless driving was also dismissed.
