A young lady does not even realize she is speeding 45 MPH in a 35 MPH zone in north San Diego county. She did not see the DUI cop using a dash mounted radar. Because it’s late at 2 a.m. the cop notices her red, blooshot, watery eyes and begins making assumptions. She tells the San Diego cop she is tried and was just dropping a friend off. The problem is the DUI officer smelled alcohol on her breath. Unexpectedly and contrary to usual police procedure, the drunk driving officer asks her to do a finger count test from behind the wheel. Trying to do the test properly means going slow. Because she did it slowly and paused prior to counting backwards, Deputy Donut asks her to step outside her vehicle. The bowling ball begins to roll. More tests: horizontal gaze nystagmus, walk and turn, one leg stand. Tiny mistakes. Failure to follow confusing instructions a bit. Cop concludes DUI. Tested. Two strong blows. .10% X 2. Arrested for California DUI and Driving with .08% BAC. She hires San Diego DUI lawyer Rick Mueller. DUI charges dropped in exchange for reckless driving charge. No suspension by DMV or court.
