After Mr. Wiggins was arrested and charged with drunken driving, he refused to submit to a breath-alcohol test and the officer suspended his driver’s license. Mr. Wiggins requested a review by a hearing officer, who upheld the license suspension. Mr. Wiggins appealed to the circuit court. The circuit court ruled for Mr. Wiggins, finding that a video of the arrest contradicted the officer’s testimony. The Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles appealed to the First District Court of Appeal, which ruled the circuit court had erred when it relied on the video. The 1st DCA also certified the issue as one of great public importance for this Court’s review.
