Offset's lawyer may have been on to something.
Offset's lawyer has previously questioned the validity of the traffic stop and now, it seems like he might have evidence to back the claim. According to TMZ, Offset's arresting officer didn't make the rapper do a field sobriety test after he smelled weed coming from the car.
Police previously reported that they smelled weed coming out of Offset's car after they pulled him over for "failure to maintain lane." Sources from the Clayton County Police Department said that it's often difficult to prove whether someone was driving under the influence or not in a court room. They also said that cops will often arrest someone for weed, but Offset had less than an ounce which is considered a petty offense. However, driving under the influence carries is a much more severe offense and the fact that the arresting officer didn't make Offset do one, sparks questions about the validity of the stop.
A field sobriety test is a standard practice across America when police see a driver showing a lack of control of the vehicle, especially if they suspect the driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Unfortunately, there are many people who are convicted of crimes based off of a police officer's observations. Police typically have the option to arrest the driver and bring them to a hospital, get a warrant and make the driver draw blood. However, this was not the case for Offset.
Offset's lawyer, Drew Findling, believes that the police officer's intent when Offset was pulled over was to search the Porsche he was driving.
