Police responded to a 911 call reporting a single car motor vehicle accident.  Upon arrival, the police observed that the Client's vehicle had collided with and snapped a medium sized tree.  Police, Fire, and Rescue attempted to speak with the Client who was slumped over the front seat and in a dazed state.  The Client was removed from the vehicle and had difficulty standing, speaking, and understanding the Officer's questions.  The Client was placed in a neck collar and transported to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment.  Once at the Hospital, the Client consented to a blood test for the presense of alcohol and was charged with driving under the influence.  The Client's blood was tested by the Rhode Island Department of Health and indicated a blood alcohol concentration of 0.28, three and one-half times the legal limit.  Based on the blood test results, the Client was then formally charged with DUI (driving under the influence with BAC over 0.15).
RESULT: REDUCED TO RECKLESS DRIVING and placed on File for one year (not a criminal conviction) with a 90 day suspension of license November 13th, 2012
