Charged with OWI in Macomb County?

Macomb County OWI Attorney

Charged with OWI in Macomb County or Oakland County? If a police officer pulls you over and suspects that you are operating while intoxicated, then they may ask you to perform some field sobriety tests in order to determine your impairment level. These various tests may include the walk and turn, the one leg stand, and the horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN). There are two very important facts that you must be aware of in regards to field sobriety tests in Michigan:

  • Field sobriety tests are not pass or fail tests, they are utilized for the sole purpose of gathering enough evidence to warrant an arrest
  • You are not legally required to comply with a field sobriety test, and you cannot be penalized for declining to perform one

There is what is called an implied consent law in Michigan, and this states that if you are driving on the roads of this state, then you are considered to have given your consent to a chemical test in the case of an arrest. While it is your right to decline the test, you will incur penalties for doing so. You will accumulate six points against your record if you refuse a breath test, blood, urine, or other chemical test.
