Since this is occurred on a military base, you should speak to a JAG representative immediately.
I suspect that your offer to give blood for a blood test should have been honored and that a court will rule in your behalf, but I'm not sufficiently experienced in such cases to render advice. Check with the JAG and go from there.
Good luck. Thanks for serving our country.
My answer depends on where you case is being prosecuted. A criminal charge on a military base could be prosecuted in a couple of different places. So , I am going to give a general answer.Most police have been trained that if one does not receive a good breath sample after two attempts is to treat the test as a refusal.I am assuming that 's what the police did in your case.If they treated it as a refusal you may not have a right to a blood test.It depends on the jurisdiction.In Tennessee, the police officer makes the choice of the blood alcohol test whether it is blood or breath. That is why you were also charged with the refusal.
