A 25-year old female was arrested for OWI in Ingham County, MI. She blew .11% on the BAC test. After reviewing the dash camera footage meticulously, attorney DeBruin and the client discussed filing a motion to suppress the arrest for lack of probable cause. Attorney Tiffany DeBruin spoke with the prosecutor and was able to point out where the officer completely disregarded his training on the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test. The officer said that he saw clues on the field sobriety tests that did not exist, and gave inappropriate directions. As a result, the charge was reduced to a civil infraction.
