Justin is from the Dominican Republic. He was on vacation at Tybee Island with his family (his wife and four kids). He left Tybee after the Parade and got pulled over for Speeding 10 mph over the limit. The Police Officer asked him to get out of his car and immediately asked him if he had consumed any alcohol. Justin told the cop he had about three beers that day several hours ago. The DUI cop shined a flashlight into his eyes and moved it from side to side. The cop asked Justin “Why are you blinking?” Justin said because I wear glasses and the light is bright.
Then the police officer asked Justin to walk back and forth many times. It is supposed to be two times, not many. Then the cop talked to Justin about drinking again. Next, the officer asked Justin to stand on one leg and balance. Justin told the cop he was a military veteran and had knee problems and had recent knee surgery. Justin said it would be impossible for him to balance on a single leg. The cop told Justin: “Do it anyway.” Justin did it. He said it hurt his knees and couldn’t do it. So the cop arrested him for Driving under the influence (less safe)(alcohol), Driving under the influence (Per se), Endangering a child while driving under the influence, and Speeding.
The police officer arrested Justin and left his wife and children on a dark road without lights. After several hours Justin was released and he had to walk back to where his family was stranded in the parked car in the dark. But it was checked and in the end all charges were dismissed in the State Court of Chatham County, Georgia.
Judgment: DUI less safe, DUI per se, Endangering a child while driving under the influence, and Speeding dismissed in Chatham County, Georgia
