The officer then followed E.S. for two additional miles then stopped him for allegedly failing to maintain lane. Mr. Yager was able to secure the gas station surveillance fiitage to prove the veracity of E.S's story in court. E.S. was also found to have marijuana on his person after the stop. Mr. Yager was able to use his extensive training in Standardized Field Sobriety testing and his Drug Recognition Expert training to show the internal inconsistencies in the field test results recorded by the arresting officer. After extensive negotiations, the State agreed to reduce the DUI-Marijuana charge to reckless driving and agreed to a conditional discharge of the Possession of Marijuana charge. This outcome saved E.S's job which required a drivers license and kept E.S's record free of a DUI conviction.
