I passed my voluntary breath test and then the officer said he would like me to take a blood test too. I told him that I was voluntariy taking these tests and that I would no longer like to do them and that I would like to go because I passed one already. He said I was refusing to take a blood test and i was arrested.........he then brought me refusal paper work while i was in jail and wanted me to sign them. I told him that I wanted to go take the blood test since i was arrested and that i wouldnt sign his papers. I never got to take it
In California, officers usually ask a licensee in investigation for a DUI to take a preliminary alcohol screening test prior to being arrested. Taking this does not satisfy the "implied consent law." Once arrested, the officer can then request a breath or blood test. In a situation where the officer suspects drugs are involved, they can request a blood test even after a breath test is given. Refusal to a blood test in this situation can constitute a refusal. You should speak to a DUI attorney in your area to discuss the case in more detail.
