TAMPERING WITH A WITNESS AND BATTERY

Client was a passenger in an Uber and vomited during the ride, causing the driver to stop and tell the client to get out. The Client got out but realized he left his smart phone, ID, and credit card in the backseat. He chased down the car and was yelling for the driver to stop so he could get his things. The driver panicked and claimed that our client was trying to attack her. She claimed that when she tried to call the police our client attacked her and knocked her phone away, knocking her to the ground in the process. Our client was intoxicated and was arrested for Tampering with a witness to hinder a 9-11 call (Felony) and battery (misdemeanor).

Result: Longwell Lawyers engaged in discovery, took depositions, and prepared the case for trial. On the day of trial, the client agreed to enter a plea to a separate charge of disorderly intoxication only and all original criminal charges were dropped.
