    It's a shame they're leaving the conference.

    E..F...G...H...R...would be an epic chant.

    "Count 73 to 62"


    "Backwards? I can't do that normally"

    If that's not an omission, I don't know what is.

    Maybe he is telling the truth, maybe he's just not smart enough to know the alphabet or how to count :jimlad:

    Honest question.

    Why do they put you through a field test? Seems like they always make the person blow, whether they past or not.

    Justifies asking for you to submit to the breathalyzer.

    *edit...* read the whole post, I guess. I can't comment on making them blow if they passed the field test, never heard of that, never been thru it.

    Its actually great advice if you know you're prob gonna blow over.. Buys you more time as they'd have to take you to the police station and administer it there, could buy you an half hour at least to get under the limit

    I've seen this, had a friend pass all the test and still have to blow. THe test are given to provide more proof of your intoxication. There is no situation where they can actually help you, its always lose-lose.

    You can get out of the DUI by doing this and "lawyering" up, that can get you out of the criminal court part but the DOT will hammer you whether the court finds you innocent or guilty.

    The field sobriety tests are all attention divided tests. A person in a normal condition can do multiple things at once, like "stand with your feet together and arms down to your side and listen to the instructions". A person who is impaired the it is brain typically focuses on one thing, therefore it is hard to pass those tests impaired.

    I do believe the breathalyzers are not allowed in court,they are just part of the whole process. The blood tests at hospitals and intoxilyzer machine at most police departments are the final key to the puzzle.

    That's just a quick complicated answer.

    True statement, DOT will still take your license but it'll save you from having an owi on your record

    Just because you refuse the test doesn't mean you won't be convicted of OWI plus you will still be arrested.

    Best plan is to not be a dumb *** and don't drink and drive.

    Here's a longer video. Includes his attorney talking to the arresting officer while Pinkel is handcuffed in the back seat.
