Default DUI Questions

Hey guys, my boyfriend is being charged with DUI with serious bodily injury. My question is regarding the timing and if the way they went about it is normal or not.
At the time of the accident he was cited for 316.081, operating a vehicle on the wrong side of the road and was charged with that. Close to 7 months after the accident they brought the DUI charges against him. The tox report was received 2 months after the accident and the victim statement was acquired 4 months after. Is it normal for them to wait nearly 7 months to charge like that? I also know in some states they can't charge for a DUI if they have to use the previous charge (driving on the wrong side of the road in this case) as their reasonable suspicion of intoxication. Is that the case in Florida? We've secured a lawyer, I'm just curious while we wait on them to review things.
