Highlight

For a law enforcement officer to testify about the results of a sobriety test, the proper foundation to be established is evidence of the officer's training and experience in administering the test and evidence that the test was properly administered.
Probable cause to arrest for driving under the influence of drugs exists when an officer: 1) observes signs of a driver's physical or mental impairment; and 2) has reason to believe the impairment is caused by drugs.
