Can medical problems influence a breath test ?
The Breathalyzer and Acid Reflux People suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) have an increased risk of getting a false-positive result above the legal limit on a breath-alcohol test. Even if only a very small amount of alcohol is consumed, many GERD patients have tested above the legal limit of 0.08, placing them in danger of a DWI conviction.

OWI in Iowa first offense ?
I was arrested for my 1st offense OWI in Iowa over the weekend. I was initially pulled over for my license plate light was out. I tested .155 on the breath test, but also demanded an independant blood test at my own expense.

I guess I don't know what the proper procedure is for my blood sample, but I don't think it was handled right. Do I have any chance of getting this reduced or thrown out ?

August 2015, vehicle accident. taken to Hospital and was treated for injuries. while there State patrolman attempted to ask questions and get me to blow in hand held device. I was drugged and unable too. he asked for blood test and I refused. I was not even or barely awake. I know my license has been revoked and they did not take my license from me.
