Assume you were pulled over in NYS, under the suspicion of DWI/DWAI.
If you were to refuse a Breathalyzer and/or a Field Sobriety Test, what exactly are the implications? I am currently aware that there is a mandated 1-year suspension with revocation for any individual under 21 that refuses to comply with the test (along with fines); but my question is more of on the individual's "record"
If an employer were to do a license-check, would they be presented with a copy that states the individual in question was convicted of a DWI, despite the fact they were never breath/blood tested?
Which brings another question: Assuming you deny the breath test again, what follow up action will Law Enforcement take? Can they take you straight into custody and attempt to get another sample?
