Highlight

Once the Intoxilyzer test record and checklist is admitted into evidence, the department has established prima facie that the officer followed the approved method and ascertained the twenty-minute wait period.
A defendant may rebut the department's prima facie case of fair administration, but he must do more than raise the mere possibility of error.
Observing a defendant is not the only manner of ascertaining that the driver had nothing to eat, drink, or smoke within the twenty minutes prior to the collection of the breath sample.
