DUI charge against former Florida Gator hoops star dropped.
Last week it was the Atlanta Braves’ Derek Lowe, this week it’s former Florida Gator hoops star Dan Werner. Both got their DUI cases dismissed for insufficient evidence. These cases go to show that all is not lost just because you are arrested for a DUI. There are often extreme differences from what appears in the arresting officer’s report and what appears on a video tape or comes across in a court of law. An experienced and dedicated DUI defense attorney can point out these differences to a judge or jury to help you obtain the best outcome possible for your case.
GAINESVILLE – A DUI charge against a former Florida basketball player has been dropped.
Dan Werner, a forward for the Gators from 2006 to 2010, was arrested in April. But Spencer Mann, spokesman for the state attorney’s office, said there was “insufficient evidence to sustain a conviction.”
According to the arrest report, Werner’s breath smelled of alcohol and he had watery, bloodshot eyes. The report says Werner performed poorly on field sobriety tests. He blew a 0.065 and 0.070 on the breath alcohol test.
“You look at everything. You look at the blow for breath alcohol, you look at the field sobriety video,” Mann said. “There’s just insufficient evidence to sustain a conviction.”
Another fine example of the Bottom Line when it comes to DUI cases…
