NH State Liquor Commissioner Faces Dwi Charge

The New Hampshire State Liquor Commissioner has been charged with driving while intoxicated after being arrested on Saturday, April 17. According to a article, the Commissioner was pulled over near Gilford and failed a field sobriety test before refusing to submit to a breathalyzer. He was taken to Belknap County Jail and charged with driving while intoxicated and speeding before being released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail.

Field sobriety tests (SFST’s) in New Hampshire are subjective experiments conducted by law enforcement officials to determine if a person was driving while impaired. These tests are performed in order to evaluate coordination, mental awareness, motor function, and ability to pay attention. A person may refuse to submit to such tests by communicating to the officer that he/she wishes to speak to an attorney. Given their subjective nature, field sobriety tests are prone to inaccuracies and flaws. For example, it is possible to fail such a test due to nervousness, poor balance, or a legitimate medical condition. If you have been subjected to field sobriety tests and subsequently charged with DWI, you will need to contact a New Hampshire DWI lawyer who can help you contest the officer’s subjective findings and the charge.
