Breath & Blood Tests

Oakland County DUI/OWI Attorney

Defending Against Breath & Blood Tests

One of the many ways that law enforcement will verify that a driver is indeed operating under the influence of alcohol in a case of suspected DUI/OWI, is by administering a breath or blood test. These are done to check the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of the driver. In the state of Michigan, it is law the all drivers must consent to these tests if they have been arrested for drunk driving or drug driving, and a test refusal will often lead to criminal penalties and driving privilege suspension, also known as “Implied Consent Violation.”

After a refusal of the breath test, the officer must provide you with a temporary permit “paper license” so that you can drive for 14 days and rights to file an appeal. This appeal must be taken within 14 days from the date of your arrest. In most cases, it is usually a good idea to file the appeal. You should contact a DUI Attorney immediately after your release from jail to help you fight to keep your driver’s license and advise you what steps to take.
