Joe got off work at 6:00 pm on Friday. He and his work buddy split a 6-pack of Busch tallboys and went to play dominoes. Joe drank three of the tallboys and then left to go visit his mother.
From 8:30 to 11:00 pm he talked with his mom and did not drink any alcohol. Joe had stopped drinking when he got to his mom’s house. Joe fell sleep on his mother’s couch and then got up at 3:45 am to go home to get ready for work that day.
Joe was pulled over at 4:00 am had the smell of alcohol on his breath and reportedly failed all the sobriety test he was given, including the HGN (Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus), Walk and Turn and the One Legged Stand.
Joe again performed those sobriety tests at the police station but this time on video. He also refused the breath test.
Joe looked solid as a rock on the video. The officer administering those tests even lost his balance demonstrating the One Legged Stand.
The state offered Joe an incredible plea bargain of no jail time, no probation, just paying a $100 fine.
Joe turned the offer down and went to trial where he was found to be NOT GUILTY.
