Numerous vehicle drivers are arrested in Texas every year for drunk driving. The criminal courts have often found that such arrests, even if they are conducted after ordering the driver to perform a standardized field sobriety test, can turn out to be inconclusive. Many cases are dismissed every year in Texas due to the wrongful administration of field sobriety tests. Or even it is proven that the test itself was compromised due to some pre-existing condition of the vehicle's driver.
Other defenses, however, are available for those facing DUI charges. One of the basic defenses with most criminal charges is the defense of mistake. In many cases, the vehicle driver may be involuntarily inebriated. In fact, the vehicle driver may be completely unaware that the driver has any alcohol in the person's system before the individual gets behind the wheel. Such a defense of mistakes may also result in allowing the driver to be acquitted of all drunk driving charges.
