Can I choose between a Blood, Breath or Urine Test when pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving in Maine?
Under most circumstances you cannot. The officer is allowed to require a breath test unless it is deemed "unreasonable." If you are allowed a blood test, you may have "a physician" draw your sample, if "a physician" is reasonably available. Police officers have been misled to believe that you may only chose a doctor if it is your doctor and he/she is reasonably available.
