Columbia Police Department analyst refuses to take a breath test

There are serious consequences for South Carolina drivers who operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. If a driver is suspected of driving while intoxicated, the authorities may employ a breath test to determine the blood alcohol level of the accused. Consenting to these tests is not mandatory -- as one such instance shows -- but those who refuse to take a breath test can face another set of legal issues.

When a resident of South Carolina is charged with illegally driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, there is always the potential for serious consequences no matter what the nature of the circumstances surrounding the charges. However, the circumstances surrounding the situation as well as the alleged drunk driver's criminal history, if any, can lead to an increased level of severity in the charges. Some of these circumstances might include a high blood alcohol content, refusing a Breathalyzer or causing an accident that leads to the severe bodily harm or death of another individual.
