Field sobriety tests are voluntary, but refusal to submit to a state administered chemical test to determine blood alcohol content could carry serious penalties in addition to any possible criminal charges.

If you were arrested for DUI and performed any field sobriety tests, there is a chance the tests could be disputed and possibly deemed inadmissible.
