Based on probable cause and the results of the field sobriety tests and/or the breathalyzer, a DUI arrest is made, and a DUI offense charge is filed. In California, the individual must submit to a blood or breath test with no defense attorney present. The arrested individual is not explained his/her rights about refusal to submit to a test. A direct refusal to testing leads to an automatic one-year license suspension and even an extended jail sentence.
