First time DUI - 0.12% Breath - Charged Reduced, Saved Driver License

February 2015

K.A. suffered DUI arrest in Alameda County. Charges reduced, and won DMV hearing, saving driver license.

A car had pulled onto the shoulder of the freeway with car trouble, and a CHP officer arrived to see if any assistance was needed. The driver replied that a tow truck was on the way and no additional assistance was needed. The officer then asked the driver to step out of the car so he could conduct a DUI investigation.

K.A. admitted to drinking alcohol. Following the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs), K.A. blew into a Preliminary Alcohol Screening (PAS) device, which showed a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.121%. A subsequent breath test confirmed a 0.12% BAC.

I got the charges reduced to reckless driving, and won K.A.'s Administrative Per Se hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles, avoiding a four-month driver license suspension.
