On August 31, 2016 my client’s case of drunk it public was dismissed because the officer submitted only a citation and not a full police report, which is commonly done. In order to prove a drunk in public, a blood alcohol test is not required. The standard of proof is whether the defendant is blocking the roadway or else is so intoxicated to be a danger to himself and/or others. Since there was no report, the DA could not determine whether this standard was met. As a result, my argument to dismiss the case was granted. All charges were dropped on the first pretrial hearing.
