If pulled over for alleged DUI, can I request a blood test, instead of being subjected to an FST? Can an officer deny my request for a blood sample, and instead do a urine or breath test? I've heard that the blood test is the most accurate, so I'm wondering if I can legally demand one for that reason. Also, are the police required to hold onto my blood, so that it can be examined again for my defense?
Except under certain circumstances where a warrant can be used to force a blood draw you can refuse any test. However,...
If a driver is pulled over and refuses to do FSTs, and an officer decides to place the individual under arrest, when and where are BAC chemical tests administered? Are the tests done before or after being booked? If the chemical tests indicate little to no alcohol in the suspect's system, does he/she still go to jail, or are they set free?

Hello, I've been hearing a lot of recent stories of people getting arrested for DUI after taking medicine(s) that they are legally prescribed by their doctor. My question is how I should go about my interaction with the Police in the event that they ask me to step out of my vehicle.

Probably not, if the case is still open in California.
I was recently convicted of a DUI (.07 BAC) in Virginia. I am moving to Indiana in the very near future for a new job. When I talked to the clerk, she stated that my restricted license would only be good for the state of Virginia and that I would have to also apply in Indiana and that they may have separate requirements. What should I go about doing here? Also, my lawyer stated that Indiana may not require an interlock device be installed as they have different guidelines for first time offenders. Any truth to this?
Every state has different restrictions when it comes to a DUI offense. For instance, TN would not require an interlock...
