State v. C.F.
The charge was reduced to Reckless Driving because the officer gave the client misleading advice on whether to submit to breath testing. He told the client that he would release her if she blew under the legal limit. As a result, the client was misinformed of his choices at the time of the arrest. Misinformation is akin to coercion. If a police officer in Georgia coerces a person into testing, those tests will be thrown out.
