DUI Arrest at Macdill Air Force Base

At Thomas & Paulk, we have handled many cases that involve clients who ran into legal trouble at the gate of the Macdill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL. Recently, we were involved with one where our client had been stopped by a guard who believed that they smelled alcohol. After this observation, the guard called for an officer from the Tampa Police Department who promptly arrived to perform an investigation into the possibility of drunk driving. The officer administered several different field sobriety tests and claims to have noticed several different forms of impairment. At this time, our client was arrested for a DUI and refused to submit to any form of breath test.

This is not the first time that we have handled such cases involving arrests at Macdill A.F.B. Throughout our experience, we have found that these cases have run into considerable complications – namely, that the State has difficulty with proof of jurisdiction. Similarly, there are complications involving obtaining witnesses from the base appearing in court. Utilizing our past experience, we were able to present these complications to the State Attorney, who agreed to drop the DUI charges to merely reckless driving.

When you have been arrested, the experience of your lawyer can make a significant difference in the overall outcome of your case. It is therefore imperative that you work with the attorney best-suited for your case. If you have been arrested and would like to discuss your situation with a legal professional, you should not hesitate to get the involvement of our firm. We understand the legal complications that you are facing, as well as the best approach we could take – during an initial case review, we could help to explain your legal options and determine the best course of action. So don't waste a moment – give our firm a call today!
