Field Sobriety Tests in Buckeye

If you are arrested for a DUI in Buckeye, you may remember the officer using some of the following tests:

  • Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, or HGN, also known as the "pen test". The purpose of this test is to observe eye movement as an object, often a pen or pen light, is moved in front of your eyes
  • Balancing tests such as the one leg stand, standing on one leg for an extended period, or walk and turn, walking heel to toe in a straight line. Their purpose is to test your motor skills and divided attention ability.
  • Recitation of numbers or letters like saying the alphabet while counting backwards from 1000.
