If you are stopped for a DUI in Charleston, SouthCarolina, you should cooperate fully with the policeofficer, providing all requested information. In most cases, if the officer suspects that you have beendrinking and are impaired, you will be asked to perform avariety of field tests to determine sobriety.Field sobriety tests to determine whether you are guilty of a DUI typicallyinclude walking heel-toe in a straight line, standing on one leg for a shortperiod, or other tests which should be easily passed while sober.The officer will also observe for slurred speech or other signs of drunkenness. If you are sober, you should not worry if stopped for a DUI or DWI. Typically, a blood alcohol test will also be performed, and if clear, youwill not be charged with a DUI or DWI under DWI laws.
