Is it possible to be charged with an OWI in the state of Iowa, if I refuse all tests? {field sobriety,breath,blood.}
My question is for preventative reasons only. I have never been charged with an OWI but would like to know my best course of action if ever faced with the situation of being pulled over while potentially intoxicated. I have a class A CDL and from my understanding I can be charged with an OWI with a BAC of .04 rather than the normal .08
The .04 limit only applies when you are driving a commercial motor vehicle at the time of the traffic stop. Otherwise,...

Can i get in trouble if I was trying to get to the hospital but was pulled over?
I was trying to get to the hospital because I was hit in my already fractured rib. Everyone in the household was either intoxicated or on drugs so I tried driving myself. I have a suspended license and was taken to jail even after telling the officer that I need to get to the hospital.

Will I still get in trouble if I had ptsd flashbacks and drove and was pulled over with a suspended license?

Driving while your license is suspended is a simple misdemeanor regardless of the reason you were driving. You should...
