Think a first time DUI is no big deal in Minnesota or North Dakota? Think again.

A driving under the influence arrest -- even a first time one -- is a big deal. Some people think that a first time offense is just a slap on the wrist, but the truth is that even just one DUI can have serious consequences that will affect a person for years to come.

What three tests are commonly used for field sobriety tests?

In North Dakota, when a police officer or patrolman suspects that a person is driving while intoxicated, they must first establish probable cause before they can make an arrest. Most of the time, an officer will establish probable cause by pulling the driver over and asking them to perform one of several standardized tests. Knowing what to expect during the stop may help a driver perform the tests without stress or anxiety, which can potentially produce a more accurate result.

Two October 2013 cases took center stage in the court's deliberation as attorneys for two defendants charged with DUI argued that the state's new laws go against the fourth amendment. The fourth amendment of the United States Constitution states that citizens should not be subjected to unreasonable search and seizure.
