State v. TC
The client was stopped at a roadblock and failed several field sobriety evaluations and the State breath test results provided a Georgia Breath test reading of .179. The initial stop of the client's vehicle was challenged in a motion hearing and it was shown that the officers did not follow proper procedure during the roadblock by not stopping every vehicle and the roadblock had not been approved by a supervisor. Because the roadblock was illegal due to the improper procedure, the charge was dismissed.
