Man refuses breath test, must present DUI defense

A young Georgia driver's call for help resulted in his arrest. The 19-year-old man was involved in a minor accident, and when he did the right thing to call and report it from the scene, he was arrested for DUI. He now finds himself facing serious legal trouble, needing to present a DUI defense. 

The man's ordeal began when he called 911 services from the side of the road to report that he had struck an unknown object, which caused a flat tire, rendering his vehicle disabled. Police responded after the driver gave an accurate location of the vehicle. When police arrived, they noted that all four tires were flat and the oil pan seemed damaged. 

The police stated that they felt the man's speech was slurred and he seemed confused. Rather than assume this could have been due to injury as a result of the accident, they asked him to take a Breathalyzer test. The driver refused, and though police did not report that they found any evidence of alcohol on his person or in the vehicle, he was arrested for DUI anyway. 

When a Georgia driver finds him- or herself needing to present a DUI defense, he or she may feel as if the deck is already stacked against him or her. Fortunately, an accusation is not an indication of guilt, and he or she will be given the opportunity to defend against the charges. In many cases, it can be helpful to partner with an experienced attorney. An attorney is often well-versed in the law and can help a defendant bring the truth to light in a court of law.
