  • Failed Field Sobriety Test

    Hi - I currently live in North Carolina, but the below pertains to a DUI case in NY that was just resolved.

    Background:
    I was arrested on a DUI charge because I failed the Field Sobriety Test (FST). They took me back to the station where I blew a .07 BAC, which is below the limit.

    My attorney was able to get the arresting officer and the prosecutor to agree to drop the DUI charge because I have vestibular (balance) issues and naturally occurring nystagmus, which was documented in my medical records by multiple physicians. That plus I the fact that I was under the BAC limit.

    My question:
    Is it possible to get a medical card that shows that I have these 2 medical conditions? I would want to show this card to an officer if I ever get asked to take the field sobriety test in the future. Suppose I had a BAC of 0.0, but for some reason an officer asks me to step out of the car, and I fail the FST and get arrested. I would then have to go through the whole legal process again - at great cost, I might add.

    Thanks

    Sorry to hear of your run in with the law, but this is a UK based forum and you are most unlikely to receive any responses

        Thanks DES8. I did not realize it was UK based. I must have missed that. And ATTICUS - mind your own business. Toodle-oo!

          I agree with Newton on that one! Who we vote for should not be an issue on the forum...
