After being stopped defendant had difficulty in retrieving his license from his wallet. Defendant displayed a strong odor of alcohol, glassy eyes and thick slurred speech. When asked what time he thought it was the defendant responded with a time that was incorrect by approximately two hours. Defendant admitted to having consumed three or four beers and had wet stains on his clothing. The arresting police alleged the defendant was given field sobriety tests and failed the one-leg stand, a nine step walk and turn, and backwards countdown.

In addition, the registry immediately reinstated the defendant’s driver’s license. The operating to endanger charge was to be dismissed at the end of the period of the CWOF.
