"The defendant was induced to refuse to submit to a chemical test based on erroneous information provided by the law enforcement officer," Webb said in the motion. The motion also stated that the arresting officer was without probable cause to believe she was operating under the influence.

The Associated Press reported that Struthers must be present at trial per court records. reported that the original charges against Struthers stated she "did fail to submit to a test at the request of the law enforcement officer."
