Careful Examination of Blood Alcohol Test Results
Police officers must follow strict procedures when making a DUI arrest, particularly when they request field sobriety, or chemical tests for blood alcohol content (BAC), including Breathalyzer results, and urine and blood tests. What many people arrested for DUI do not realize is that often, proper protocol is not followed. When this is the case, the evidence collected may not be valid.
At Lockett Law, P.A., in Jacksonville, we carefully examine the details of our clients’ DUI cases, including all steps taken by the arresting officer(s).
We will determine if the police had probable cause to pull you over and arrest you, and whether they followed proper procedures when conducting field sobriety tests, a breath test and any other BAC tests.

We regularly defend people charged with DUI who have been given field, breath and other blood alcohol level tests, including urine tests. A blood test should only be administered if a breath or urine test is impossible or impractical, or if there was an accident involving serious bodily injury.
