An officer might use non-standardized field sobriety tests in states where the only evidence necessary from these tests is that the officer had sensible cause to detain the person on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Tests of this alternative nature are at the officer’s judgment. Straightforward tests might include:
Rhomberg stationary balance test: this requires the driver to stand, feet together, and lean the head back to look up at the sky while holding their arms out to the side. The officer is simply looking for a loss of balance.
