  1. He had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath? How about he smelled like alcohol? Good site, but really should shorten article titles so they are more understandable.

  2. He had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath? How about he smelled like alcohol?

    Jeff … The sentence is quoted from the police report. In court, there is a big difference between smelling like alcohol, and having a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on your breath. A defense lawyer can win a case if the police report doesn’t have enough specific observations that support the officer’s determination that the driver was impaired. Details are related to probable cause to believe that the defendant committed the offense of DUI. Often there is a big long list of observations to support probable cause: glassy eyes, red eyes, bloodshot eyes, flushed face, slurred speech, admission of drinking, crossing the center line, hitting the curb, failure to advance at a green light, speeding, turning with a wide radius, swerving, drifting, driving on the wrong side of the road, stopping inappropriately, signaling inconsistent with driving actions.

    Titles are designated so readers can get the gist of the article without even opening the article, or to promote content that might be unique compared to other articles.
