Breath & Blood Tests

Minneapolis Blood & Breath Test DWI / DUI/ Drunk Driving Defense Attorney

When a person is stopped by law enforcement under suspicion of DWI, they may be asked to submit to a blood or breath test. A breath test is performed by use of an Intoxilyzer 5000 or DataMaster machine and with this method of testing, an individual will blow into a device that will measure breath alcohol concentration. This is said to be almost identical to BAC (blood alcohol content) that can be determined by a simple blood test at the police department or law enforcement center.

If you have been charged with drunk driving, contact our Minnesota DWI Lawyer immediately

Failing a blood or breath test does not automatically mean that you are guilty of DWI (driving while intoxicated) or DUI (driving under the influence). There are many potential problems that can affect the outcome of these tests which can lead to a false arrest. These problems can include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Blood Tests Issues:
  • Improper Training
  • Improper Administration
  • Improper Reading
  • Contamination
  • Improper Storage
  • Breath Tests Issues:
  • Improper Administration
  • Radio Frequency/Electrical Interference
  • Improper Maintenance
  • Improper Calibration
  • Existing Medical Conditions
