Austin DWI Attorney, Kyle Lowe, snags third DWI acquittal in a row

December 13th, 2010 by Kyle Lowe

Austin DWI Attorney, Kyle Lowe, secured his third Travis County DWI acquittal in a row.  Moments before jury selection in County Court at Law #8, Honorable Carlos Barerra’s courtroom, a Travis County prosecutor offered a reduction of charges to Mr. Lowe’s client.  The offer on the table was to plea to Obstruction of a Passageway; the client rejected the offer.  Following jury selection, two Austin police officers took the witness stand and alleged the following indicators of intoxication: that Mr. Lowe’s client failed to signal a lane change on Congress Ave. at 12:15 a.m.; that said client admitted to drinking 1-2 beers; that said client engaged in excessive movement and had slurred, thick-tongued speech during field sobriety testing, and that he demonstrated 4 of 6 indicators on the HGN (eye test).  Additional observations during testing were: that said client swayed and used his arms to balance himself on the one-leg stand, that the client failed to touch heel to toe during the walk and turn portion of the test, stopped while walking,  took the wrong number of steps, and then awkwardly turned around.  During the final test, one of the officers testified that said client was to stand with his feet together, close his eyes, tilt his head backwards, and estimate the passage of 30 seconds.  The testimony was that the client was off by 10 seconds.  At the conclusion of the field testing, said client was arrested for DWI, whereupon he refused the breath test and claimed on video that he did not understand the statutory warning the APD officer read to him prior to the request for a breath specimen.  Upon cross-examination, both APD officers revealed that the HGN eye test must be performed exactly as the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) requires and that further, since Mr. Lowe’s client was facing the lights of oncoming traffic, his eyes could have shown false indicators of intoxication due to the strobe effect of passing headlights.  After further cross-examination, the APD officers also acknowledged that said client’s mistakes on the walk and turn test were not overly significant and that Mr. Lowe’s client held his foot up for 31 seconds, a time which exceeded the maximum due to the client’s slow counting.  Mr. Lowe’s client did not take the stand; the jury deliberated for an hour and a half and returned a verdict of Not Guilty of DWI.

Sixteen Blood Draws in Austin PD’s Latest ‘No Refusal’ Enforcement

March 27th, 2009 by Kyle Lowe

Last week we warned that those in attendance for SXSW should be careful to avoid getting an Austin DWI, as there was no doubt police would be on high alert. Turns out 25 people were arrested between 9pm Friday and 5am Saturday, according to KVUE News.

It was the latest “No Refusal” enforcement from the Austin Police Department, the program where if a driver is pulled over for an Austin DWI, they may not decline to take a breathalyzer test. And if the driver says “no,” the Austin police officer can get a warrant for their blood. The last “No Refusal” enforcement happened on Super Bowl Sunday, when 21 Austin DWI arrests were made.

According to KVUE, nine out of the 25 people arrested for an Austin DWI last weekend gave a breath sample, and the remaining 16 had search warrants issued on them so that APD could draw blood samples. Since the average number of Austin DWI blood draws on other “No Refusal” nights is 25, police noted that 16 was relatively low.

SXSW Attendees: Don’t Get an Austin DWI

March 19th, 2009 by Kyle Lowe

Right now in Austin, the SXSW (South by Southwest) Music, Film and Interactive Festival is going on. Drawing thousands of people from all over the world, SXSW is a truly impressive annual event that seems to get bigger and better every year. It’s no wonder Austin is called the Live Music Capital of the World.

SXSW shows, panels and film screenings are concentrated in the downtown area, with tons of parties happening throughout the day and well into the night. Sixth Street bars, along with pretty much every other downtown Austin area bar, do a tremendous business during SXSW.

If you’re attending SXSW, don’t get an Austin DWI. Play it safe and don’t drive if you’ve been drinking. There are plenty of cabs available to provide transportation home. With so many people in town living the rock star life during SXSW, you can bet that police officers are on high alert and will be making a lot of Austin DWI arrests if they need to. Don’t let that be you.

If You Get an Austin DWI During SXSW

Whether you’re from Austin or visiting from out of town, getting arrested for an Austin DWI can be overwhelming. An Austin DWI can be a permanent mark on your record, and the penalties can include time in jail, fines and driver’s license suspension. Hiring an Austin DWI attorney is imperative.
