When a law enforcement officer pulls you over on suspicion of drunk driving, you will probably be asked to submit to a breathalyzer or blood alcohol level test. Though you are allowed to refuse the test, there are stark penalties for doing so. With that in mind, what should you do if you are pulled over under such circumstances?
In a new video, Nashville criminal defense attorney Brent Horst outlines your options, should you find yourself in a situation where a police officer is testing your level of intoxication. In the video, attorney Horst explains that if you are certain you’re within your limits, you should submit to the test, contrary to what many other attorneys may say.
