Okay, so you just got pulled over for weaving, speeding or its 10:30 p.m. and you are just driving around downtown. The cop asks you for your license and insurance and then says, “sir, where are you coming from tonight, “or “Ma’am have you been drinking tonight.” What do you do? What do you say?
People always seem to believe that if they just tell the officer the truth they will be let go or the officer will help them somehow after being charged. WELL, these assumptions are WRONG. Everything you say to a police officer could and will hurt you, because he is evaluating your speech, your eyes, and he is smelling in your car to see if he can detect anything.
Now, the officer asks you to step outside the vehicle. Be careful because he is watching your every move, every step. The officer pulls you aside and says he believes you have been drinking and just wants to perform a few tests before letting you head home.
DO YOU TAKE THESE TESTS?
In plain terms, NO, don’t take the FST, BAC or Blood test. You have the right to deny all of these tests. Please remember the officer will tell you about more penalties involved for refusing. However, in court this will work to your advantage. You will be arrested. You will need to make a bond. YOU WILL NEED TO CALL US!
