Marijuana OVI / DUI Charge Dismissed

Recently, law enforcement has shifted its focus in OVI enforcement from alcohol related impairment to impairment caused by drugs – both legal prescription drugs and illegal drugs such as marijuana.  Chase Mallory traveled to South Carolina to complete the training that law enforcement is being taught for drug related impairment (ARIDE).  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) have designed the Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) course to train law enforcement.

Our client found himself the subject of this shift in focus when he was pulled over for driving without a license and reckless driving.  The arresting officer questioned our client about the smell of marijuana and demanded he submit to roadside field sobriety tests, including tests specifically designed for drug related impairment.  He was arrested for marijuana OVI / DUI due to the officer’s allegation he was impaired by marijuana.  After some research, he hired our team.

With comprehensive knowledge of drug related field sobriety tests, attorney Chase Mallory reviewed the police reports with the prosecuting attorney and negotiated a dismissal of the marijuana OVI / DUI charge in exchange for the reckless driving charge.  He left court with only a $200 fine and no OVI.
