Is it legal for police to refuse to let me do a blood test if I offer to give a blood sample instead of a breathalyzer?
I was driving home to Haslet Tuesday night from a friends house in Watauga. I had just picked up some food and was eating and driving and I guess I was swerving a little bit. I was pulled over and I refused to do a PBT. I was arrested. At the station I refused a breathalyzer but offered to do a blood test. They told me I could not do a blood test and that I had to do the breathalyzer. I still refused and they put me in jail for 4 days and took my license.
It is perfectly legal AND, you can expect a 6 month driver's license suspension for refusing the breath test. You CAN...

On probation. Should I give my PO my independent hair test that I had done for my own benefit?
I'm being accused of a non-negative hair test. I was not allowed to provide my medication list. Long story. I was told I failed but not allowed results. I have not used in 4 years. So I paid for another test. This company used the same lab. Still non-negative, but my medication list cleared me of drug use. I fear a blue warrant will be issued, so I send my PO these results? I can't afford and attorney and my mom paid for the test. I just don't know if I should just wait or give them a copy.
That may be your only option. But you also should be appointed an attorney by the Court if you cannot afford one....
II have a mental health illness, can I get help if I feel I was treated unfairly ?
Yes I sent a message earlier regarding my Probation Officer being negative when I called to let her know that I was going to be a few minutes late because my only transportation is by bus, and she told me she was all booked up and I can understand that, but I didn't understand when she asked if I had any friends, and I said know I keep to myself and she said to figure it out and said she was ending the conversation. I suffer from mental illness and I felt I was treated unfairly. I thought by letting her know ahead of time that she would understand but instead she made me feel bad and miserable.
So, you're saying a probation officer wasn't nice to a defendant? GET IN LINE.. IT'S A MISERABLE JOB AND TURNS THEM...
Why wasn't I given the breathalyzer or have blood drawn after being arrested for DWI?
I was pulled over and arrested for DWI and they only made me do the walk I agreed to breathalyzer but the officer checked refused and they didn't give it to me. Officers did not draw blood either. Can I beat this?
I'd have to look at the police report and video to see why they didn't test you or why they marked that you refused,...
How soon can i parole on a 3rd dwi 3 yrs tdcj sentence?
I got my 3rd do after a witness seen me driving,granite the cop only caught me becuade he located the truck at my house. I was not behind the wheel when he pulled up and yet I still got a dwi. I have been offered 3 yrs tdcj. My question is with the overcrowding I've been reading about and budget cuts how likely is it that I could be out on parole. Is it likely to get a serve all. My lawyer said I could be out 4 months and 8 days later but also heard 9 months.
3 years can always mean 3 years. That said, if you mind your manners, you will probably get kicked out pretty quick.
