Under the implied consent laws of the state of Wisconsin, police can demand and even force a driver to submit to a sobriety test. See Save Your Driver's License if you refused to submit to a field sobriety test.
When a person is stopped by police on the suspicion of driving while under the influence, police can lawfully request the person to take standardized field sobriety tests. Whether those test results can be used to prosecute the person for a drunk driving offense is a question of law; if the stop was illegal, the results may be able to be suppressed. If the stop was legal, and probable cause existed for the police to make the stop, the results are likely admissable.
In addition to standardized field sobriety tests, police often conduct other tests that go beyond the scope of legal testing. You should be sure to discuss with your drunk driving defense attorney all tests administered by police.
Once police place a person under arrest, they can then demand a blood test. If you refuse, they will ticket you for refusing to submit to a test. They can then force you to submit to the test.
