Defending against a DUI charge based upon a breathalyzer can be complicated. If the person is a diabetic, he or she may show a false level of intoxication. In such a case the person would likely hire an expert witness to testify as to how the breath test works and how diabetes could affect the accuracy of the test. This type of defense would be presented in front of a jury at trial. An experienced Arizona DUI lawyer would be key to defending a case like this.
