Driver taken into custody after field sobriety test

When someone finds themselves accused of driving under the influence and submits to a field sobriety test, the results of the test could have an impact on their future in many ways. In addition to spending time behind bars and facing stiff financial penalties, drunk driving charges can also haunt people years down the road. For example, someone charged with drunk driving in Boston may struggle to find work in Massachusetts, or elsewhere in the country.

Law enforcement officials in New Hampshire recently took a driver into custody after she submitted to a field sobriety test. The test, which was conducted at the station, allegedly showed the woman's blood alcohol level to be 0.12. Authorities charged the woman and she was let go after posting bail.

According to officials, the woman had passed out at the drive-through of a fast food restaurant. When responding to the incident, which occurred shortly after 1 a.m., authorities say they detected alcohol on the driver's breath and she confessed that she was under the influence of alcohol.

For those who have found themselves accused of operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, it is vital to handle the situation correctly. With so much at stake, people who are in this position should have a solid understanding of their options and carefully move forward. For some, making sense of drunk driving laws can be difficult, which is why turning to a legal professional who knows how to handle DUI cases could be useful.
