Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If there were two separate charges, it was a result of them stemming from the same event. As such, there was a basis to charge your friend with both DUI and reckless driving. The reason that the two officers were listed, is because they were both involved with either the stop or the DUI investigation
and they will be called as witnesses for the State, if the case goes to trial
. The only odd thing is that the same citation number appeared for both charges, since the citations would have needed to be issued separately, since they were for two different offenses. This is something which could be a clerical error and amended, if needed. In addition, if there are two charges for the same thing, the State is likely going to drop/dismiss on one of them and proceed on the other, depending on the facts of the case.
