She was pulled over for Speeding on I-16 headed out of Savannah. She pulled off the road immediately. She used her blinker to change lanes and get off the road and turned the blinker off before her car stopped completely. The cop walked up and banged on the back of her car and said “Mam’ get out of the car.” She does. She is manipulated into doing the roadside agility tryouts, (a.k.a. the Field sobriety tests). The cop gives them wrong and skips the last one and does the fourth thing first.
But this case went away early. Maybe because they didn’t want to deal with me that day. Or maybe because I am ticketed as a Red and am on the general blacklist. Fighting a DUI is a very complicated and beautiful operation. As complicated and as beautiful as always.
In the Chatham County Recorder’s Court of Savannah, Georgia, Auburn plead her DUI less safe down to Reckless Driving. The DUI is gone. She’s got no record. Thank God. I was not afraid to fight the DUI charges. But, am happy that the DUI was negotiated down to a plea of Reckless Driving. My girl has a clean driving record. Her record is full of a driving whiteness.
