Resisting Arrest, OUI-2nd Offense -- Ayer District Court

Outcome: Not Guilty on both counts

Description: Client, a 50-year-old male, was stopped in his silver convertible sports car because the officer "estimated" client's speed to be too fast. At trial, the officer testified that my client's eyes were extremely bloodshot, his speech was thick-tongued, and he had a very stong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath. My client admitted to playing golf with his brothers and having two beers after the match. After being taken out of the car, my client was accused of "raising his arms to the police" and pulling away from them. At trial, my client testified that the facts stated by the police were largely incorrect. In addition, my client's brother and girlfriend testified. The jury found my client not guilty on both counts.
