Man Charged with DWI after Rear-Ending Someone in McDonalds’ Drive-thru

Man Charged with DWI after Rear-Ending Someone in McDonalds’ Drive-thru

Facts: Our client was looking to grab a late night snack at McDonalds after a night out on the town. While waiting in the drive-thru, the car in front of the client started going forward then stopped abruptly. Our client couldn’t stop in time from bumping them in the back. The worst part about the situation was two federal agents were also in the drive-thru line and saw the bump so they called the police. Upon making contact with our client the State Trooper found our client to have a strong odor of alcohol on this breath, red glassy eyes, and slurred speech. After investigating our client the State Trooper arrested and charged our client with a DWI.

In court, Mr. Jetton took the case to trial. At trial, Mr. Jetton was able to cross examine the State Trooper to uncover the Trooper did a poor job in his investigation and proved the State did not have adequate evidence to prove his client guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. After jury deliberations Mr. Jetton’s aggressive defense paid off and his client was found NOT GUILITY of Driving While Impaired.

Outcome: Not Guilty
