Galveston DWI Attorney
Drunk Driving Charges in Galveston, TX
If you have been pulled over because a police officer suspected you were driving while intoxicated, you may have been asked to submit to a series of standardized field sobriety tests. The officer will also look around for signs of intoxication such as the smell of alcohol, open alcohol containers, and other signs of impairment.
The police officer can also request a breath or blood test to check your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Refusing this test can result in automatic driver's license suspension. If you are found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher, you may be arrested and charged with a DWI. This is a serious criminal offense that can result in harsh penalties, and you need the help of a Galveston criminal defense lawyer to fight your charges.
