Justin Bieber field sobriety tests video released
Posted by: Thomas Grajek  | On 15th March, 2014

Justin Bieber’s DUI arrest in Florida is still ongoing.  Recently, the video of him performing Field Sobriety Exercises (FSE’s) was released to the public.  These are standardized tasks developed by the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration (NHTSA) that DUI officers use to develop probably cause for a suspected driver’s arrest for Driving Under the Influence (DUI).  NHTSA publishes a manual describing in detail how the exercises are supposed to be instructed, performed by the suspect, and evaluated by the officer.

Recently, the manual was updated to a more “picture” instruction format instead of the traditional detailed text instructions.  This is an attempt to make it more difficult for DUI defense attorneys to impeach an officer during a DUI trial to prove he did not administer the FSE’s correctly or grade the suspected driver in accordance with the NHTSA guidelines.  This strategy will not work as it will make the arresting officer unable to properly answer questions under cross-examination, especially if the officer was never trained under the previous versions of the manual.  As a DUI defense lawyer and member of the National College of DUI Defense (NCDD), I have copies of every NHTSA manual  including the instructor and student manual.  If you have been arrested for DUI, it is extremely important that the DUI lawyer you retain has the tools necessary to defend you against this crime.

If you have been arrested for DUI, retain an attorney that is a member of the DUI defense college and has the experience and tools to defend and fight for you in court.

After my husbands DUI, I met with a couple of lawyers but NONE were as attentive as Thomas Grajek. Thomas was able to beat the DUI charge that I thought would be impossible.

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
