Oklahoma changes breathalyzer test rules at emergency meeting

OKLAHOMA CITY-- The State Board of Tests for Alcohol and Drug Influence held an emergency meeting Friday morning to change some of the rules for the breathalyzer tests administered by law enforcement agencies across our state.

This is all in response to Sample vs. DPS, a lawsuit that a DUI offender won against the Department of Public Safety.

That court ruling basically made the current breathalyzer test inadmissible under the current rules.

The director and board members say they feel confident they have addressed the court’s concerns and fixed the problems.

But several DUI defense attorneys in attendance at the meeting say they still have concerns over the way things were done.

Later today on Oklahoma's NewsChannel 4, hear why thousands could still get their driver's licenses back even with convictions.
