Driver charged after refusing chemical test

Tennessee's laws on drunk driving are tough. Penalties for impaired driving offenses have increased over the past few decades, making things very difficult at times for residents who are charged with these crimes. Many parts of a person's life can be hindered after an arrest for driving under the influence. Even the ability to continue working may be at risk even without a conviction.

Such is the case for one 43-year-old woman who has been placed on suspension by her employer subsequent to her recent DUI arrest. Employed as a teacher at an elementary school, she must go without compensation at least for the time being. It is not known what may happen to her job if she is ultimately convicted of the charges against her.

In addition to the DUI charge, the defendant is accused of not agreeing to take a chemical test when requested by officers. She has also been charged with assaulting an officer. No details are known about what led to the assault charge. What is known is that she was stopped after being reported as driving in a reckless manner. She is said to have initially participated in field sobriety tests but then may not have completed those and would not take a blood test.

People who have been arrested for alcohol-related charges may find it useful to talk with an experienced lawyer. Learning the details about these types of charges may help people know how to proceed with their defenses.
