State v. Mr. P (DMC No. 12923)

NOT GUILTY/COMPLETE ACQUITTAL at JURY TRIAL| SUPER EXTREME DWI (.257 BAC), EXTREME DWI, DUI & DWI – State v. Mr. P (DMC NO. 12923) Jul 2, 2015 (Tempe City Court Case No. 14-036979): Mr. P was seen at The Brickyard’s area in Tempe by a Security Guard urinating inside the parking garage, and when confronted he was told to go to Jack in the Box. He apologized for his behavior and approximately 40 minutes later, the same Security Guard saw Mr. P asleep in his vehicle in a parking spot with the engine running and the air conditioner on. Police arrived and it took them several attempts to awake Mr. P.

Once he was taken to the station, he provided a blood test which revealed a .257 BAC. We presented evidence to the Jury that the State lacked proof of “Actual Physical Control” (APC). We proved that Mr. P was merely using his vehicle as “temporary shelter,” and was not actually operating his vehicle. The State argued that because his engine was on, this constituted “Driving”. The Jury did not buy the State’s argument, and Mr. P was found Not Guilty of All Charges. He was originally facing a minimum of 45 days in Jail if convicted.
