Delaware Blood Alcohol Content Testing Flaws
When someone is pulled over for a DUI in Sussex County Delaware there are a number of ways the police officers may attempt to determine if you are intoxicated should they have reason to suspect you are.
Initial clues are by detecting an alcoholic odor, decreased motor skills and slurred speech. From there the police officer may ask you if you have been drinking. Your answer may further prompt them to ask you to submit to a breathalyzer test or, later on, a direct blood test.
Ultimately you may also be asked to submit to Field Sobriety Tests. Each of these tests has very specific legal procedures, protocols, and guidelines that must be adhered to when administering the tests. Not adhering to these procedures may result in your DUI case being dismissed.
