San Diego DUI Arrest Scenarios Attorney

Law enforcement in San Diego is as vigilant as ever, and a routine traffic stop could happen at any time. A police officer may pull you over for any of the following reasons:

Whatever the reason is for your traffic stop, once you have been pulled over your officer will start looking for signs of intoxication like bloodshot eyes, the smell of alcohol on your breath, or the way you respond to simple questions.

If the officer decides that you are showing signs of impairment, he will probably ask you to step out of the car and perform a battery of field sobriety tests to measure your balance, coordination, and ability to follow a simple set of instructions. More often than not, field sobriety tests will only reinforce a police officer’s suspicions, even if you are not intoxicated. In California, you have the legal right to refuse taking these tests. After field sobriety tests, the officer may ask you to take a Breathalyzer tests. You may refuse this as well, but you could face consequences like a suspended license.
