Facts

A trooper responded to a vehicle parked on the sidewalk with headlights and engine running. The officer alleged our client was asleep on the driver side window. EMS punctured the window of the vehicle and removed our client who could not respond. After receiving medical attention, and after declining consent to a blood test the officer arrested our client for careless driving and driving under the influence.
