Wallin proves client was passenger, not the driver!

Mr. Wallin’s client was attending a block party.  He was offered a ride on someone’s motorcycle, which ended in a crash.  The driver ran from the scene, because it turned out the motorcycle was stolen.  A Chicago police officer who makes a lot of DUI arrests came to the scene, saw an injured (and drunk) Mr. R.T., and arrested him for DUI without investigating the crash.  At trial, Mr. Wallin presented several witnesses who testified that Mr. R.T. was a passenger, not the driver, and the judge found him not guilty.
