Flashing lights and sirens may have made you second-guess having that last drink with dinner. Once pulled over, the Louisiana officer approached your window and began asking you questions. At some point, the officer may have asked you to exit your vehicle.
Once out of the vehicle, the officer requested that you participate in field sobriety tests. Now, you have a decision to make -- should you participate or not? You do have the legal right to refuse, but you need to know that doing so may not prevent an arrest or possible ramifications. Knowing more about what police are looking for in the three most often used field sobriety tests, called the Standardized Field Sobriety Test, could help you make that decision.
