Can being overweight affect your field sobriety test?

In Texas, if you are arrested for drinking while intoxicated, you are required by the "implied consent" law to take a blood or breath test to determine blood alcohol content. If you refuse, your license will be suspended for 180 days for a first offense. Before the officer arrests you, you may be subjected to a field sobriety test. This test generally includes three elements:

Investigator suspended following misdemeanor DWI

A Texas juvenile investigator was suspended following an arrest, although she is still receiving pay. Charged with a DWI, she has apparently not posted her bond yet. Although the local police chief noted that the woman has never had any type of criminal violation during her time on the force, a conviction could have an adverse impact on the future of her career.

DWI charges dismissed for Texas appellate court judge

Being arrested can be an overwhelming ordeal for many people, and some may even begin working on their defenses as quickly as possible. However, simply being arrested does not necessarily mean that a person will actually have to face those charges in court. A Texas judge recently had her DWI charge dismissed, but the details of the reason for the dismissal are unknown.

When can I be charged with a DWI?

It is well known that driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is illegal in Texas and across the United States. However, what exactly constitutes a DWI charge may be less clear. While blood alcohol concentration can play a role in whether you'll have to face charges for drunk driving, it is not the only factor that is taken into consideration.

Texas man accused of third DWI

A Texas man was recently accused of driving while intoxicated for the third time. Police say that a high-speed chase that may have reached speeds of up to 120 mph ended in his arrest. If convicted of the pending charges, including DWI, he may face up to 12 years in prison. Nevertheless, he and his defense counsel will undoubtedly fight to achieve a different result.

Josh Brent sentenced on Texas DWI manslaughter charges

Ex-Cowboy's player, Josh Brent, who was arrested on charges of drunk driving following a fatal car accident that killed one of his teammates, was recently sentenced. The Texas football player did not pass a field sobriety test, and although he continued to deny the DWI charge of intoxication manslaughter, he was recently convicted of the charges. He was sentenced to half a year in jail and a decade of probation.
