The law indicates that a person is under the influence of alcohol when he/she cannot think and act with ordinary care. Police officers determine whether you are thinking and acting with ordinary care by observing the way you drive, talk, and act. But the most obvious way police make that determination is by administering field sobriety tests. In addition, to obtain further evidence against you, police will ask you to submit to a breath test to determine your blood alcohol level.
Were you aware that you can refuse both the field sobriety tests and breathalyzer machine? By refusing to participate in testing, you are increasing the likelihood of a successful outcome at trial. The only thing left to do is to get a DUI trial lawyer to take your case to trial – Contact the Law Offices of Matt Fakhoury for more information.
