What happens during a field sobriety test?

Massachusetts residents may be curious about what types of tests to expect if they are pulled over by a police officer who thinks they may have been drinking. There are three types of field sobriety tests endorsed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Drunk driving convictions and ignition interlock devices

When a person has been convicted of drunk driving or has had their license suspended as a result of driving with a blood alcohol concentration greater than .08 percent, Massachusetts law mandates they must have an ignition interlock device installed in order to get their driving privileges reinstated. A separate certified device must additionally be installed on every vehicle the person owns, leases or operates.

Massachusetts man facing third OUI charge

Authorities in Massachusetts have reported that a 60-year-old man was taken into custody on Oct. 31 in Hopkinton for driving under the influence of alcohol. A records check revealed that the Ashland resident has been involved in two previous drunk driving incidents. The man has been charged with OUI and a number of traffic violations. He was released from custody after posting bail in the amount of $750, but a judge ordered that his phone be equipped with a device that will be used to monitor his drinking.

Defining shoplifting in Massachusetts

Under Massachusetts law, an individual can be taken into custody for shoplifting with no warrant necessary. Shoplifting is any act that aims to deprive a merchant of use or benefit from merchandise located inside of a store, in a container inside of a store or in a shopping cart that is removed from a retail location. An individual may be charged with shoplifting if he or she did not actually steal any merchandise.
