I'm guessing he refused a breathalizer test and was jailed according to the law.

Milian is a great attorney and a great person. Today's law enforcement appears to have had the option of "discretion" removed from their brain, some still have it though.

Good Luck Al and may you prevail!!

Maybe your buddy should have used "discretion" before getting behind the wheel after drinking.

BSO has a good working relationship with the Broward Prosecutor's offive and there is no way the would have arrested a former prosecutor without substantial probable cause. My gues is he either refused, or failed, a breathalyzer test...

What do you know about what happened? Nothing. Info has not been released, and article had no details. The only thing that makes this a story is the fact that it's Al. Well, I know Al, and I prosecuted with him, and he is the most responsible guy you ever met.

AL is a great guy who made a mistake. I bet we have all made mistakes and I am sure he is probably beating himself up over this.

It's good that he is an "ex" prosecutor. But now he will have some real inside info, in the future defense of cops gone bad.

Al! Al! AL! why do the self incriminating "sobriety" test? It is NOT required by law. You can refuse a breathalizer test as well, but you should demand a BLOOD test as that is the most accurate test.

Breathalizers machines can be used for false eveidence if the cop doesn't do the test properly (like clearing the results from the last person!)

I would NEVER do a "field" sobriety test. Most people can't do the balancing even when sober and that include smots cops as well.

When you are a former prosecutor, who has probably prosecuted drunk drivers, and a lawyer who defended them, this guy has a greater understanding of drunk driving than every one.Yet he made the decision to get drunk and get behind the wheel.No excuse.He deserves to be prosecuted.

Sounds like the Fort Lauderdale PD cop is the one who screwed Milian. Once Faccini from the BSO DUI task force was called it was too late for and discretion on BSO's part. Faccini has a car cam and that will tell the story for Al.
