DUI Arrests Based on Nontestimonial Evidence

TESTIMONIAL vs. NONTESTIMONIALImage via WikipediaIn Pennsylvania v. Muniz, 110 S.Ct.2638 (1990), the United States Supreme Court held that slurred speech and the muscle coordination (or lack thereof) required to complete the standardized field sobriety tests amount to nontestimonial information that does not fall within the scope of the Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and does not invoke the safeguards of Miranda warnings.  They held that standardized field sobriety tests are "real" tests and/or tests of a "physical" variety.  This ruling was consistent with its holding in Schmerber v. California, 384 U.S. 757 (1966), which held that the Fifth Amendment...
