You know, you can be arrested for declining to take any field sobriety tests or a breatholizer. The cop has a legal obligation to keep anyone suspected of being under the influence off of the roads, and if he suspects and you refuse, then you can (and most probably will) be incarcerated anyhow. By refusing the tests, you are remvoing chances for a police officer to get evidence to support his claim.(In other words, he can't say you blew .1 or that you failed the heel-toe walk.) When the officer arrests you though, he'll more than likely have video to show you staggering, which can be enough to convict. DUI/DWI is a serious offense, and they'll convict on the smallest evidence if they can. Be sure to request a trial jury if it isn't already offered at a magistrate level.
The best thing is to just not do it though. If you're going to drink, just stay off of the dang roads people!
