Those charged with DUI come from many walks of life, from first time alcohol/drug consumers to those who aren’t exactly strangers to the “system.” A common theme among those charged with DUI is that they may have felt that they were not impaired when they were pulled over by a law enforcement officer. At this stage, you’ll find that the officer is asking you questions and eventually may have even asked you to perform Field Sobriety Tests. Although the Prosecutor will argue that these sobriety tests are fair and objective tests that can determine impairment, the Seattle DUI lawyers at Sheed Law Offices highly disagree and we have had consistent success making virtually every argument possible in attacking the admissibility and validity of these tests.

After going through the Field Sobriety Tests, the officer likely asked that you provide a portable breath test (PBT), which is different than the official Breath or Blood Test as evidence of DUI. Typically, after the PBT is administered is when the officer then exercises his or her discretion and decides whether or not to arrest someone under suspicion of DUI or whether to cite for something else based on their observations and the subject’s statements. If arrested for DUI, law enforcement likely placed you in custody and transported you back to a police station for further questioning and to administer a Blood Alcohol Test (BAC) to assess the level of alcohol in your blood. Washington State law requires that those who hold WA State drivers’ licenses grant implied consent in providing a breath sample (in some cases a Blood Sample) when they are arrested for DUI and there was probable cause for the arrest. If the subject does not consent to a breath test, they may be charged with a DUI Refusal, which has its own challenges, potential sentencing implications, and licensing consequences. For those arrested under the suspicion of a Marijuana DUI or another drug, law enforcement will seek a blood sample and potentially involve another officer who has received certification as a Drug Recognition Expert to build a case against you as well.
Even if your breath sample or blood sample indicates that you were below the legal limits, a law enforcement officer can still arrest you for driving under the influence, this is called the “affected by” standard where an officer attempts to show that you were on or under the influence of a substance that affected your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. DUI Penalties are among the most demanding and severe amongst misdemeanors in Washington State.
