ISSUES: The Client was in a van he used for work in the middle of an intersection. A police cruiser pulled up behind his vehicle with its emergency lights activated. The officer got out of his vehicle and approached the driver’s side window. The Client then proceeded through the intersection, whereupon the officer gave chase at 22 miles per hour. During the course of investigating the case, the video of the “chase” was discovered where the officer could be heard stating that the Client was probably just looking for a place to pull over, not trying to escape. The prosecutor wanted 18 months imprisonment for the alleged offense.
OUTCOME: Upon being forced to try the case, the State Dropped/Abandoned the Charges.
