State of Georgia V. B.P.
Fulton County State Court
Our client was involved in an accident in which he struck (and knocked over) a power pole. An officer investigating the accident smelled alcohol on our client, and our client admitted drinking. Our client performed very poorly on field sobriety tests, which included the HGN test, walk-and-turn test, one-leg-stand test, and an ABC test. Our client subsequently refused a state-administered breath test. This case transferred from the Atlanta Municipal Court to the Fulton County State Court. In the interim period, we won the administrative license suspension hearing, so our client’s privilege to drive was not affected by the refusal. In the criminal case, our motion to suppress all evidence, in this case, was granted and our client’s DUI charge was fully dismissed.
