Arrested for a DUI in Blue Ash, Ohio

You’d made the decision to drive, but now it was time to make another decision; call a DUI attorney as soon as possible.

Should I take the field sobriety tests?

No, you should not. Never take field sobriety tests. This includes the hand-held breathalyzers, which are known for their inaccurate readings. However, these inaccurate readings could affect you and your DUI court proceedings. If a police officer asks you to take this test, or requests that you perform a horizontal gaze Nystagmus, walk and turn, one leg stand, or other physical field sobriety tests, please politely say that your attorney, Kelly Farrish, has advised you not to take these tests.

Call a DUI attorney as soon as you can, even if you’ve just been pulled over five minutes beforehand.

What if I am underage?

An underage DUI cannot be removed from your record. If you are taken back to the police station and a chemical test determines that you have a blood alcohol level of a 0.02 you can still be charged for OVUAC and if it’s higher than 0.08 you will be charged for a DUI.
