DUI—Not Guilty: Dirty Dancing—Guilty As Charged

June 15, 2012 – In trial the testimony focused as much on dirty dancing as it did on the charged offense, driving under the influence of alcohol.

Mr. McAllister’s client was thrown out of a bar for “dirty dancing”. Ironically, the bouncers were far more offended by his dancing than was his dance partner, who had egged him on. The client testified “She wanted me to be a bad boy—I guess I was!”

Not content with 86’ing him out of the establishment, the bouncers called the police and contended he drove his car in the parking lot, thus getting him charged with DUI.

The jury sided with Kirk McAllister’s defense and found the client not guilty—even though the blood alcohol level was 0.18%. (Case number1427624)
