Physical control charge dismissed

Mar 5, 2019

Adam was charged with marijuana-DUI, after client was found “passed out” in his car, with the vehicle in drive, and upon contact, was groggy, disoriented, and slow responding to officer commands, all of which the police thought showed impairment. The police also smelled burnt marijuana and claimed they saw Adam had a green tongue.

The police went and got a warrant for Adam’s blood. We were convinced there would be no marijuana in his system, and that he was just sleeping in the car.

We waited patiently for the blood test results to come back, and when they did, they showed Adam had nothing illegal in his system. We persuaded the prosecutors they didn’t have a case, and they dismissed the charges.
