Defective Breathalyzer for Rourke?

Arrested in Fort Lauderdale | William R. Moore Criminal Defense Lawyer

Last month, 1980’s movie icon Mickey Rourke was arrested for driving under the influence on a Vespa in Fort Lauderdale Beach. The Fort Lauderdale Herald is reporting that Rourke’s defense to the DUI charge is that the Breathalyzer used by the Fort Lauderdale Beach Police Department malfunctioned. Rourke’s attorney maintains that when Rourke first took the test the machine gave a blood alcohol reading of .081, just over the legal limit in Florida. However, a second test was administered later on and Rourke’s blood alcohol reading was said to be a .074. It is not determined whether the Fort Lauderdale-Dade County State Attorney’s office will drop the charges filed against Rourke.

Client Reviews
William Moore saves the day once again... I can’t thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track...You’ll be glad he’s on your defense team, I guarantee it. Eric Bailey
William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
