For those reading this article, we prefer breath test results as opposed to blood draws. But be aware that North Carolina DWI laws allows for forced blood draw after obtaining a warrant if you refuse. For more information, click here if you refuse to submit to a breath sample.

Alcohol Absorption

There is a certain time line between when alcohol is consumed and how quickly it gets into your bloodstream. Hence, people who have not eaten have an empty stomach. As a result, any alcohol ingested is absorbed more quickly and in greater amounts. Consequently, your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is higher and rises more quickly. Thus, if you consume alcohol just before arrest, breath test quickly because any alcohol ingested has not been absorbed. Conversely, if you stopped drinking earlier, delay any breath testing. Why? Because your body needs to process the alcohol already consumed and lower your BAC.
