Through the showing of police tapes and direct testimony, Attorney Mullen established law enforcement failed to interview all the actors at the scene of an accident. One of the actors missed was the designated driver with the keys of the vehicle in his pocket during the time the defendant allegedly operated the vehicle. Three other individuals interviewed who worked for Emergency Medical Services were also impaired and leaving the bar. Attorney Mullen was able to show what actually happened that evening during the trial. Again the jury took little time in coming to a not guilty verdict.
