I was arrested for a DUI in Lawrenceburg. Passed field sobriety tests, and refused blood test because I am a commercial driver.
I was arrested for a DUI in Lawrenceburg, TN.

Call a local attorney. Breath tests are always offered. Did he write you for a refusal? You need a lawyer in your area.

Duplicate question and answer. See next question.
Is an ignition interlock device required if found guilty for dui?
Even if its your first offense and your blood alcohol content is less than .15? Ive read too many different things online. So is it required?
Interlock or IIDs are required on all DUI convictions in TN. No exceptions
How is it legal for TN to force me to take drug classes for a dui with no failed drug tests and no drug charge??
I have to take drug classes based on a drug assessment that my probation officer gave me that pertained to me whole life. So alot of the questions about drugs are from when I was a kid in highschool.

Is this correct or am I misunderstanding something?
It is legal and this happens a lot with DUI cases. Did you have an attorney represent you? If so, then you should...
