You have rights, Exercise them!
You have rights guaranteed to you by the Constitution of the United States, be proactive and invoke your rights!

In addition, you have a Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizure. You can refuse to consent to a breath or blood test. If you refuse to consent to a blood test, the police may get a search warrant and take your blood anyway. However, to get a search warrant and take your blood without your consent, the police must have probable cause. Furthermore, you have a Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. You can invoke your right to remain silent and refuse to answer questions. You do not have to answer questions after you have been arrested. You can and should request an attorney.
Don’t help the police build a case against you.
