Jonathan was found passed out in his car in Laguna Beach in the early morning hours on a Sunday. He was buckled into the driver’s seat with the engine running, the headlights on and the car parked illegally, blocking a residential alley. Jonathan was clearly intoxicated but claimed that he was sleeping it off in his car with the heater on. He was charged with DUI with a prior conviction and was facing a substantial jail sentence and loss of his driver’s license. The jury decided that the arresting officer interpreted the situation incorrectly and found that Jonathan was not operating his vehicle while impaired and acquitted him on all counts.
