March 22, 2016A driver leaving Miami Beach at 3:00 a.m. was observed by an officer following another vehicle too closely on the McArthur Causeway. At trial, the Miami Beach officer testified that the driver exhibited all of the signs of impairment including bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, strong odor of alcohol on his breath and he was unsteady on his feet. The officer also testified that he failed all of the roadside exercises, HGN, walk-and-turn, finger-to-nose, one-leg-stand and balance test. The driver was arrested and transported to the jail, where he refused to take the breath test. The prosecutor refused to drop the charge or reduce the DUI to a lesser charge.
