I was leaving downtown Denver and was pulled over for speeding (54 in a 35). When asked out of the car and asked to do roadside test and breathalyzer I refused, including giving blood. Will this give me any shot of a reduced charge, ie wreckless driving? I was never in front of the officers dashcam during this, yet in his paperwork he stated that I was swaying and my eyes were red and watery, with slurred speech. Do they have to have evidence of intoxication for a DUI charge? If so, how would they get it with no weaving or BAC?
The definition, charges, and penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) vary by state and depend on a number of factors.
After you are arrested for DUI, getting the charges against you dropped or reduced will require you to develop a defense.
