State v. LU
The charge was reduced to Reckless Driving after it was determined that the field sobriety tests and breath test results would not be admissible at trial because the officer used coercive tactics and forced the client to submit to the testing. Field Sobriety tests in Georgia are 100% voluntary. As a result, if there is coercion, the field sobriety tests will be suppressed. Then accordingly, there will be no probable case to arrest.
