51-year-old client was questioned by an officer following an auto accident with another vehicle.  The other driver was deemed to be at fault, however, the client was questioned by the officer due to knowledge of client’s drug history.  The officer claimed that he smelled “something sweet/meth”  on client’s person, and did a search of the car.  No drugs were found.  Client was arrested and charged with a single count of DUI less safe.  He submitted to a blood test that came back positive for methamphetamine, among other drugs.  Considering that the client was not responsible for the auto accident and that drugs in one’s system does not equate to an impaired/less safe driver per se, the prosecutor agreed that the client should not have been arrested and dismissed the charge.
