4A Fla Jur Automobiles and Other Vehicles § 402
§ 402. Impairment of normal faculties—Evidence of impairment
"Defendant charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol to extent that his normal faculties were impaired was entitled to offer expert testimony tending to show that he was not impaired at time of his arrest despite having consumed alcohol prior to driving, where defendant was not charged with any offense involving particular blood alcohol level and defendant had declined to be tested to determine his blood alcohol level after his arrest."
4A Fla Jur Automobiles and Other Vehicles § 399
§ 399. Arrest or stop, generally—Probable cause
"Probable cause for a DUI arrest must be based upon more than a belief that a driver has consumed alcohol; it must arise from facts and circumstances that show a probability that a driver is impaired by alcohol or has an unlawful amount of alcohol in his or her system. There are many factors that contribute to such a finding. The presence of an odor of alcohol alone is insufficient for a finding of probable cause."
