Being arrested can be an overwhelming ordeal for many people, and some may even begin working on their defenses as quickly as possible. However, simply being arrested does not necessarily mean that a person will actually have to face those charges in court. A Texas judge recently had her DWI charge dismissed, but the details of the reason for the dismissal are unknown.
The woman was reportedly traveling at 69 mph while in an area that had a speed limit of only 55 mph. After initiating a traffic stop, the attending officer allegedly detected the scent of alcohol and also believed that she was slurring her speech. Although the driver did say that she had consumed several drinks while at dinner with some friends, she said that her last drink had been at least three hours before she left the dinner and headed home.
