    Field Sobriety Test Requirement

    Under Wisconsin law, are you required to perform a field sobriety test (FST) when a officer requests it.

    I would suspect that refusal to submit to a FST will contribute to probable cause for arrest for suspision of OWI, and likely produce a request to submit to a blood/alcohol test under the implied consent law. For the purposes of argument, I am just interested if refusal to consent to only the FST is a violation of the implied consent, or any other Wisconsin law.

    Thank you for your help.

    If an officer ask you to do the sobriety test then you have to do it because it’s the rules by the government so they can judge you are you drunk or not.
