The final test that the police officer will ask the DUI suspect to perform is the one leg stand. The officer will instruct the DUI suspect to stand with his or her arms by their side, raise one leg off the ground, keep both legs straight, count from one to thirty by one thousands.
The police officer is trying to look at four DUI indicators. The police officer is trying to see if the DUI suspect swaying while balancing, puts foot down, hops on the foot that is on the ground, or if the DUI suspect raises his or her arms.
It is important to note that field sobriety tests are evidence. However, the lone fact that you failed one or more than one field sobriety tests does not mean that you are automatically guilty of the crime of DUI.
