If you have been drinking, getting behind the wheel and driving home can have serious legal consequences. This video describes the repercussions of taking or not taking a field sobriety test if you are pulled over on suspicion of a DUI.
While an officer may forcefully request that you submit to a field sobriety test, state law dictates that you are not required to consent to this testing on the side of the road. If you refuse this option, you are then legally forced to undergo chemical testing at the police station. Watch the full video clip to learn more.
