Elimination And Absorption Of Alcohol

Police officers are instructed in the areas of elimination and absorption rates. On average, a single drink will take approximately 50 minutes to be absorbed into a person’s blood stream. When the alcohol has been completely absorbed into the blood, they reach their peak blood alcohol content. The person is now in the elimination phase and will eliminate at approximately the same rate. Get the officer to admit that it makes all the difference as it relates to BAC levels how much and over what period of time alcohol is consumed. Inquire from the officer if they asked the client, prior to their arrest decision, what specifically your client drank and over what period of time. Do not let them say that they asked during the Alcohol Influence Report interview. They already arrested the client by the time the AIR interview takes place. Why didn’t the officer ask these questions during the investigative stage prior to arresting your client?
