Are breath tests even required for a DUI arrest?
The truth is that a breath test is not required in order to make a DUI
arrest. Law enforcement officers may arrest anyone who demonstrates evidence
of intoxication or who has lost control of their motor functions; however,
some officers may hurry through any field sobriety tests or questioning
to get to the breath test, or skip all preliminary actions altogether.
If this is the case, our firm can relentlessly fight to prove that your
officer was negligent and did not take necessary precautions to ensure
that you were truly intoxicated and that your breath test was invalid.
