Blood & Breath Tests for DUI
Representation from a Murfreesboro DUI Attorney
A person who has been stopped by law enforcement after being suspected of driving under the influence can be tested for intoxication in a number of ways. The two most reliable methods are a breath test (or “breathalyzer” test) and a blood test. The breath test is administered to the individual by having them breathe into a device which measures blood alcohol content (BAC) through the breath. The blood test is administered by directly taking a sample of the individual’s blood and sending it to two laboratories (a police laboratory and an independent laboratory) to ascertain its alcohol content.

Defense Against Blood & Breath Test Results
These tests, while at times reliable, are prone to errors. There are a number of defenses that can be employed to question the test results’ validity, especially in the case of breathalyzer tests. These defenses include:
- The device being operated improperly
- The device being insufficiently maintained
- The device being improperly calibrated
- The defendant’s body being greater than 98.6 degrees
- The defendant having medical or dental issues which make them an improper testing candidate
- Residual alcohol in the mouth falsely increasing results
Blood test results can also be defended against, as they are often administrated improperly or handled carelessly in the lab. A DUI attorney is available to defend you against your DUI charges if they have come about due to breath or blood test results.
