Blood Testing in DUI cases: Do They Really Test the Blood?

Forensic blood testing is misleading because blood tests in DUI cases don't actually test your blood. If you have ever been arrested for a DUI in Arizona, and the officers or their proxies drew blood, then you are likely aware that two 10 ml grey top tubes of blood are drawn for a blood test. The myth is that one tube is preserved for you (the defendant), and the other is tested by the State's crime lab.

How does the passage of SB1070, the new Arizona immigration bill, affect DUI Cases?

This DUI blog is the furthest thing from a political blog. However, on occasions, political issues affect DUI cases in ways that are not necessarily intended. A perfect case in point is the passage of SB1070, Arizona's new immigration bill.

Be Safe This 4th of July Weekend!

According the Governor's Office of Highway Safety, last year it was reported that 309 motorists were charged with driving under the influence in Arizona over the 4th of July weekend. Of those arrests, 106 were made on the 4th itself. This was a decrease in the amount of DUI related arrests by 50 from the previous year. More than 300 officers and deputies joined a statewide task force targeting drunk driving. Of the total AZ DUI arrests, 99 were for extreme DUI. Law enforcement agencies made a total of 3,471 traffic stops during the extended holiday weekend.
