If you or someone you love has been arrested for a DWI in Lubbock or west Texas, most likely the arresting officer read them what is called the statutory warning. This piece of paper is about 6 paragraphs long and basically tells the person arrested for a DWI about the breath or blood test request. Today’s video tip covers the Implied Consent Law in Texas.
There are several potential defenses to a “refusal” case. It is important the arresting officer actually read the statutory warning to you. It is important he or she does not add anything to or leave out anything on the warnings.
