Were Your Rights Violated During A Field Sobriety Test?
Driving under the influence (DUI) is a criminal charge that requires police enforcement to adhere to strict rules and procedures. When conducting field sobriety tests, Breathalyzer tests, alcohol blood tests and urine tests to determine if an individual has consumed alcohol or drugs prior to driving, an officer must follow proper protocol or any evidence collected may be invalid.
At Scheer, Montgomery & Call, P.C., we have in-depth knowledge of all field and chemical testing procedures. Attorney Donald Montgomery is a former prosecutor and a former police officer who now instructs law enforcement officers on courtroom testimony for field sobriety testing.
There are three standard field sobriety tests that most police officers will ask someone suspected of drinking and driving to complete:
- Horizontal gaze nystagmus test — watching an object move side to side
- One-leg stand test
- Walk-and-turn test
