OUI – NOT GUILTY VERDICT
Fitchburg District Court 10/31/19
Client is observed traveling 45 mph in a 25 mph zone shortly after midnight. When signaled to pull over, client strikes the curb making a loud thumping noise. Police detect the overpowering odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from client as he admits to drinking at several bars that evening. Client holds onto his car door when exiting to maintain his balance. Client fails the HGN test, one-leg stand and nine-step walk and turn tests. Police ask client if he felt he was ok to drive home and client replies that he is not, has had more alcohol than he should have and should not be driving.
