Could a medical condition have caused your DUI charge?

Many people seem to think that breath tests, also called breathalyzers, are infallible. This leads to an assumption by many that anyone who is facing a driving under the influence (DUI) charge must be guilty. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In reality, breathalyzers can and do produce false positives for a wide range of reasons. In some cases, a false positive is due to a malfunctioning unit or administration by someone who isn't following best practices. In many other cases, medical conditions can impact the results of a breathalyzer test, making it seem like there was alcohol when there wasn't.

Breathalyzers: Why they're not foolproof

You went out to dinner with some friends, and you had a few drinks. You didn't think much of it, since you only had a few and were there for several hours. You got behind the wheel of your vehicle and started heading home when a police officer comes up behind you and pulls you over.
