I need more information. The police need probable cause to stop you in the first place. A broken taillight is a perfect example of probable cause. When I make a DUI stop, I don't write any of the tickets until I get back to the station. My main concern at the time fo the stop is safety and the field sobriety tests. * Yes. A law officer cannot "force" the person to submit to a urine or breath analysis sobriety test. The accused has the legal right to refuse and to request to speak to legal counsel, although he or she would not at that time be eligible for a public defender.
