Portable Breath Tests
If you have been arrested for DWI or DUI in Fort Worth, Arlington, Mansfield or in the surrounding cities of Tarrant County, your arresting officer, while still on the roadside, may have asked you for a sample of your breath to be analyzed by a portable breath test device or portable alcohol sensor device.
Whether you submitted or refused a portable breath test, it is important to know that Texas case law has excluded the admission of the portable breath test result from being admitted into evidence at your DWI trial.
BEWARE: Because the results of your portable breath test are not admissible in court, it may, but not always, work to your advantage if you submit to a portable breath test device. If you were over the legal limit of 0.08, the result is inadmissible in your DWI trial. If you were under the legal limit of 0.08, many officers will not arrest you for DWI or DUI.
