Gainesville DUI Case Result – Feb. 2019
A Gainesville Police Department officer responded to the 4706 block of NW 34th St. to investigate a traffic crash. The officer observed that the vehicle had struck an electrical box and observed the driver of the vehicle exiting through the car’s front passenger door. The officer noted that the driver was uneasy on his feet and had slurred speech. The officer observed that the driver emitted a strong alcohol odor and that his eyes were bloodshot and watery. The officer asked the driver to perform field sobriety exercises, which the driver agreed to do. Based on the driver’s performance, he was placed under arrest. He was asked and agreed to provide a breath sample, the results of which were .188 and .186 – above the legal limit.

The driver completed the program successfully, which resulted in a reduction of the DUI charge to a reckless driving charge, and the driver received a withhold of adjudication.
