When it comes to getting a DUI, there are countless complexities that a field sobriety test or a breathalyzer simply cannot take into account. Ideally these methods would be reliable, but anybody who has wrongfully been charged with drunk driving knows that is not always the case. One potential culprit of false charges, for example, is auto-brewery syndrome. Read on to better understand what this condition is and how it can affect DUI allegations.
If you are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, the officer will likely request that you submit to a Breathalyzer test to gauge your blood alcohol level. You may refuse, of course, but in many places, this can mean an admission of guilt. This would be a simple situation if breath tests were an entirely reliable tool, but according to Diabetes Health, diabetics are at risk of triggering faulty results. See why and what you can do in such a situation.
