It's no secret how police determine if they will charge you with driving under the influence of alcohol. Such an arrest typically begins with an officer noticing something -- your eyes, your behavior or the odor of alcohol on your breath. What follows is a series of subjective tests the officer may initiate to confirm the suspicion that you have been drinking.
Impaired driving is not something that the state of Arizona takes lightly. If a court convicts you, the potential consequences can be rather serious -- in some cases life-altering. An experienced criminal defense attorney can assist you in fighting your case. One defense strategy that is often effective is questioning the results of field sobriety tests.
