Being pulled over and asked to step out of the car by a police officer can be a completely overwhelming and intimidating situation.

However, refusing any breath or blood tests may result in your arrest and the suspension of your driver's license. Any failure of the field sobriety tests may also result in your arrest.

Attorney Kenneth Crislip has years of experience handling all types of DUI/OVI cases, including those involving field sobriety tests, for clients in Akron and throughout the surrounding Ohio communities.

Breath Tests

Previously in Ohio, law enforcement officials used the BAC Datamaster or the Intoxilyzer 5000 to measure a person's blood alcohol levels. However, now the Intoxilyzer 8000 has been established as the newest version, and the most accurate, measuring device for blood alcohol levels. Though the new machine may be more accurate, its results can still be challenged in court.

Other Field Sobriety Tests

Kenneth Crislip can assist you in challenging the reported results of any other field sobriety tests that the officer who stopped you conducted, such as:

  • Horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN): "The pen test", testing your eye movements, tracks the movement of your eyes while a pen is also introduced into your field of vision in order to demonstrate concentration and control.
  • Balancing: "Walking the line," standing on one leg or touching a finger to your nose with your eyes closed to demonstrate larger muscle control.
  • Recitation: Saying the alphabet or counting (either forwards or backwards) in order to demonstrate mental functionality.
  • Manual dexterity tests: Using your fingers and hands in patterns that demonstrate detailed control.

He can also review and challenge the results of any blood tests or urine tests that were given after your arrest.
