of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). A person's ability to drive a
motor vehicle is deemed impaired in their BAC is between .05% and .08%,
commonly know as Driving While Ability Impaired (
At arraignment, it was revealed that the client's BAC was .05%. Using
their knowledge of the DWI laws, an immediate motion to dismiss the charges
was made by Riebling, Proto & Sachs, LLP. Arguing that the Blood Alcohol
Content was proof that the
misdemeanor charges should not have been filed and that the client was not legally
intoxicated, the charges against the client were dismissed.
