ASPEN -- A woman whose breath-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit won't be charged for DUI after a judge suppressed incriminating evidence from the case, ruling that Aspen police did not have reasonable suspicion to pull her over.
Deputy District Attorney Richard Nedlin dismissed DUI charges against Carbondale resident Erika Gallegos, 26, on Tuesday, following a March 4 ruling by Pitkin County Judge Erin Fernandez-Ely. The judge threw out all evidence police collected after Gallegos was stopped on the Maroon Creek Bridge at approximately 2:15 a.m. on June 26, 2010.
