The Problem with Field Sobriety Tests
Field sobriety tests like the walk-and-turn test and the one-leg stand are supposed to detect whether your balance, reflexes and judgment are impaired by alcohol. However, these tests rely on the officer’s judgment. If your officer is inexperienced or their judgment is compromised, they could misinterpret the results and wrongfully arrest you. In addition, such tests often fail to take into account weather conditions or if the subject has a disability that makes walking in a straight line or standing on one foot difficult.
Taking Action Against Police Errors
We will investigate the circumstances of your arrest and determine if the testing was flawed. If it was, we will work doggedly to get the court to throw out the test results. Often, these roadside tests are the sole evidence against DWI defendants, so successfully suppressing bad field sobriety tests can lead directly to your charges getting dropped.
