You can refuse field sobriety test - walk and turn, one leg stand HGN etc but the chemical test of your blood breath or urine if refused could cause the lost of license for one year without a probationary license. However, it appears from your question that the state might have a probable cause issue which could result in you winning your case . You should hire a lawyer!Ask a similar question
There are several ways for a lawyer to keep a client driving if the client gets the lawyer involved immediately. I would say that I and most of the DUI lawyers on here keep our clients driving more often than not.Ask a similar question
It depends on all the circumstances, but there may be a very good chance. Good decision to refuse the tests. But this has to be gotten on immediately now. A hearing request has to be filed with the State Department of Driver Services within 10 business days of the arrest or the right to retrieve the license will be lost. It sounds to me like this may be a good case. Please contact a lawyer and get on this immediately to avoid losing any chances that might exist. I've handled multiple cases on Roswell, with good results. Contact me if you want to. I'm glad to at least talk to you. But regardless, contact someone immediately. Don't wait another day on this. Good job so far. Good luck.Ask a similar question

Hire a good DUI attorney right away and have him or her send a 10 day letter on your behalf to challenge the suspension of your license. Got only have 10 business days from the date of your arrest to do this.Ask a similar question
As long as you file the 10 Day Appeal Letter to protect your driver's license from the administrative suspension I don't see any reason why you can't save your driver's license. Additionally, you have some wonderful facts working to your advantage in this case. Based on what you have said it sounds like this case should be reduced, or otherwise dismissed.
