If you have been arrested for and charged with a suspected driving under the influence charge in Rhode Island, you can probably attest to the fear and uncertainty you felt when the officer or officers pulled you over. Many parts of that stop may be a blur to you as you were understandably scared and trying to figure out what was going to happen to you.
If you were asked to submit to testing, one of the tests you likely took was called a walk-and-turn test. FieldSobrietyTests.org explains that this is one of three standardized tests sanctioned for use by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Contrary to what you and others may think, however, none of the field sobriety tests are indicated to prove that you were in fact drunk at the time of your arrest. Instead, they are only meant to give enough support to the fact that you might be intoxicated so that officers can legally arrest you.
