The checkpoint was operated jointly by the Worcester Police Department and Massachusetts State Police. The arresting officer alleged that our client when driving into the screening area was not following directions, did not go to the designated area and had to be told three times where to go. Client allegedly had a strong odor of alcohol and bloodshot and glass eyes. The officers alleged that our client was unable to pass the nine-step walk and turn test as he took to many steps, walked off the line, started too soon and did not turn properly.
