I was in a multi car accident caused by a drunk driver. The police report states pretty clear evidence that he was drunk, however they did not get a BAC or do a breathalyzer. The court dropped the OUI charge. Why would that happen? I don't understand.
It's impossible to answer this with the information we have.
You said that the court dropped the OUI charge. That means that the other driver was charged, but that for some reason it didn't go forward. There's any number of reasons and I can only speculate. Sorry, but this isn't something we can answer here.
If you want to know, you could try contacting the district attorney's office, explain you're the victim and ask what happened. I'm not saying they'll tell you, but they're the ones who will know.
"... they did not get a BAC or do a breathalyzer. "
Which could be the reason the charge was dropped.
The foregoing is for general information purposes and does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Those seeking such a relationship are directed to the contact form on my website.
