White v. State

Facts:

Appellant sought review of a decision of the Circuit Court (Maryland), which convicted him of driving under the influence (DUI) and making an unsafe lane change and sentenced him as a second offender to one year in jail. At issue was the admissibility of the officer’s testimony that he believed, based horizontal gaze nystagmus test results, that appellant was intoxicated and his blood alcohol content was probably .10 or higher.

Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:
  • The horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN) test is a field sobriety test. A police officer’s testimony as to a driver’s performance on other field sobriety tests like finger-to-nose or walking the line, is admissible at trial as evidence that the driver was under the influence of alcohol. The HGN test should not be entitled to any more evidentiary value than other field sobriety tests. Estimates of blood alcohol content based on the HGN test are inadmissible.
