The Client was stopped for failing to illuminate his headlights and taillights during Frontier Days in Cheyenne Wyoming. Client was 64 – years old and had numerous medical conditions, which made the Client incapable of performing voluntary field sobriety maneuvers. The Client was arrested for a DUI charge and asserted his statutory right to refuse to provide warrantless breath samples for chemical testing in a DUI case. After law enforcement applied for a warrant, the blood samples were analyzed and created an alleged blood alcohol concentration (BAC) measurement of twenty one-hundredths of one percent (0.20%). After filing numerous suppression motions on behalf of the Client and indicating the client was ready to go to jury trial, the prosecution agreed it could not prove a DUI charge, despite the alleged BAC measurement and the prosecution DISMISSED the DUI charge.
Case: The Client did not deny that the Client failed to illuminate his headlights as he pulled out of a parking lot that was well illuminated. After the detention, client denied that odor of alcohol and bloodshot eyes allowed law enforcement to extend the detention in this case. The client explained to law enforcement that he had a recent knee surgery, which prevented law enforcement from administering standardized field sobriety maneuvers (SFSMs) to try to prove alcohol impairment. Unfortunately, the arresting officer relied upon SFSMs to arrest the client for a DUI charge. The Client was arrested for a DUI charge and allegedly provided breath samples resulting in a breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) measurement of eighteen one-hundredths of one percent (0.18%).
Result: After filing numerous motions on behalf of the Client claiming the field sobriety maneuvers and chemical testing measurements were not valid, the prosecution agreed that it could not prove a DUI charge and the prosecution DISMISSED the DUI charge.

Case: Client was arrested and charged with DWUIJury Verdict: GuiltyAppeal: After denying Mr. Vang's client's request to have the following question certified to the Wyoming Supreme Court: "If, under Missouri v. McNeely, the natural dissipation of alcohol in the bloodstream does not establish a per se exigency, does W.S. § 31-6-102(a)(i) facially violate Article 1 § 4 of the Wyoming Constitution and the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution?"; the District Court overturned the DUI conviction holding that Wyoming's implied consent law did not apply to the facts of the case, given the lack of evidence to place the accused upon a "public street or highway", which is a necessary condition for admitting a chemical test result in a DUI case pursuant to Wyoming's implied consent law.
