CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A judge said Wednesday he will consider a defense motion to dismiss a DUI charge against state Sen. Paul Campbell.
Campbell's lawyer, Andy Savage, asked the court for the case to be dismissed.
Savage called the trooper who arrested Campbell to the stand and then asked for the breathalyzer test to be suppressed. The field sobriety test from the trooper's dashcam was also shown in court.
Campbell registered a .09 BAC on the Data Master according to the incident report. The victim, 21-year-old Michaela Caddin, sued Campbell and claims she saw Campbell switch places with his wife in the car before police arrived. Dashcam video shows Campbell telling the trooper he wasn't the driver.
The judge said he will take the decision under advisement and will issue a written order at some point.
