Parks & Braxton announced ready for trial. Just prior trial, the firm pointed out to the State that the officer never even asked the defendant to step out of the car for the DUI investigation until he was being arrested. Thus, no-one could even see if he had any balance issues. Also, his speech was not slurred on tape. Furthermore, we provided case law to the State that the defendant's silence in not answering questions would be a violation of his Miranda rights.

The State dropped the DUI.
