Florida Motorcyclist Faces DUI Charge After Collision with Police Car

As a Florida deputy was starting to make a U-turn in an unmarked patrol vehicle, a motorcyclist crashed into the driver's side of the car. The motorcyclist was hospitalized, but did not sustain any life-threatening injuries. This crash took place on April 27 of this year, and the man was charged with a DUI on August 2. This is because, soon after the accident, it was found that he had a blood alcohol content that reached 0.08 (just above the legal limit) and 0.081. The motorcyclist was also said to have been under the influence of marijuana at that same moment.

Any DUI charge is a serious matter. A charge of driving under the influence of alcohol could lead to thousands of dollars in fines, months in jail, and even an ignition interlock device after that sentence. Breath and blood tests, the basis for many DUI charges, can be challenged however. This is especially true when BAC results are just beyond the legal limit. If a breathalyzer has not been regularly cleaned or recently calibrated, this can mean the difference between jail time and no charges at all. Not even blood tests are infallible. Drug tests can also be contested. It will take an experienced Tampa DUI lawyer on your side though.
