About Blood & Breath Tests and DUI Defense
Almost all DUI charges include testing, including blood, breath, or occasionally urine as part of the evidence against you. Initially, you will be pulled over because you were allegedly exhibiting driving behavior that law enforcement considers to be suspicious, such as speeding, reckless driving, wide turns, weaving, leaving your lane, as well as other reasons to stop a moving vehicle such as an obvious broken windshield or tail light. Once you are stopped, if the officer decides that you could be drunk, they may ask you to perform several field sobriety tests.
Even though these tests have been proven to be inaccurate ways to judge sobriety in numerous cases, three of them are still legal to use as evidence. If the officers observe any act they consider would indicate you are drunk, including the smell of alcohol, slurred speech, or that you perform the tests in a manner that indicates you are drunk, you will be arrested for DUI. No one should attempt to face a DUI charge without a skilled Cherokee County DUI lawyer guiding you through the process.
