State v. FR
The DUI charge was reduced to a local ordinance violation because the officer's stop of the vehicle was illegal. The client was cited for not signaling while changing lanes but there was no traffic and there is no duty to use a turn signal when no cars are approaching from either direction. So, the underlying offense was not an offense at all. As a result, there wasn't probable cause to arrest. The case was reduced to a local ordinance and was not reported on the client's record.
