Police Defend DUI of Man Who Blew 0.00 on Breathalyzer

Larry Davis was arrested Jan. 13, 2014 and charged with a DUI after he ran a stop sign and appeared to be intoxicated during a field sobriety test, according to arresting officers.

Davis said he had only one drink. After blowing 0.00 on a Breathalyzer, he offered to provide a blood sample as well. He ended up spending a day in jail according to the Austin Statesman.

The results came back negative months later. Now, Davis is trying to have his arrest record cleared. The Austin Police are defending their arrest and DUI charge against Davis.

“If there is someone who is possibly impaired, we don’t want them driving,” said Cmdr. David Mahoney, of Austin police said in an interview with The Raw Story. “We need to get them off the road, so that was probably (the officer’s) mindset.”

Davis’ case was dismissed last week. Travis County picked up his legal fees.

“I was arrested for nothing, really,” Davis said in an interview with The Raw Story. “It was suspicion of drunk driving, which I wasn’t so I was surprised and hurt at the same time.”
