A detention officer in the City of Lansing police lock-up is on paid administrative leave after she was accused of falsifying a breath test for an acquaintance. "I find it ironic that the police chief and LPD are willing to go public about this falsified test when they attempted to cover up a falsified breath test log and it adversely affected many more people," said Michigan DUI attorney Mike Nichols.

Nichols is currently attending the National College for DUI Defense Summer Session in Boston. He is the state delegate for Michigan to the NCDD. He adds, "we had to go to trial in January to have a jury tell the city that what happened was wrong by tendering a not guilty verdict since the city would not do the right thing and dismiss the DUI charge against one of the affected citizens who happened to be our client."
