And Another Thing....

Never agree to a breathalyzer or blood test to measure your blood alcohol or drug levels (unless you weren't drinking or doing drugs in which case you should have passed the field sobriety test and probably would not be subject to a breathalyzer test).

If you take the test and are really drunk (i.e., your blood alcohol level is something like 0.16 or higher) or full of drugs, you will get indicted for aggravated DUI. If you don't take the test, they probably don't charge you with aggravated DUI because they won't be able to prove it. It's true that you will automatically have your license revoked for a year but if you fail the test that will happen anyway.

Case in point: today we indicted a guy for aggravated DUI because his blood alcohol level was 0.18.
