If there are no injuries involved, can the police restrain you and [forcibly] take blood from you if you do not consent to the blood test?

If you have drank zero alcohol then go ahead and do the field sobriety test and blow in the breathalyzer. It won't show anything to convict you. But you probably won't even be asked to do either of those things if you have drank zero alcohol because the cop won't notice any odor or glassy eyes, impaired speech etc. to make him suspicious enough to even ask you to do those things
If you have drank any alcohol, do not do field sobriety tests, do not blow in the machine, do not talk or answer questions.
Right to remain silent, ask for an attorney.
This is what lawyers, judges and cops do when they are arrested for DUI.
It's as simple as not providing any evidence against yourself.
In fact, most defense attorneys will tell you don't talk to the police about anything ever no matter if you are a sunday school teacher or a serial killer.

It is written on the bottom of your FDL "Operation of a motor vehicle constitutes consent to any sobriety test required by law"...... Plain and simple.

My understanding is the only time they can do that is if there is an injury. One of the local police forces were going to set up roadside check points that were going to forcibly draw blood on anyone that refused the breathalyzer. Think that plan got shot down.

If you do not blow you can have your license re-instated fully till the trial. Not a hardship one but regular. Do not blow, the evidence will doom you.

False. The DMV side, and the criminal side have nothing to do with each other. You can be found not guilty, or even have the judge throw the case out becasue the cops way over stepped the law and still lose your license.

I have had 2 friends over the last couple of years refuse to blow and they both got convicted and to make it worse they had both prior refusals in the past. Well both ended up taking plea bargains for level 2 dui's which is more costly than a level one.

And blowing a 0.16 would have helped them?

you kind of lost me there fish the only point I was making is while a agree don't take any test doesn't mean they still can't convict you.

Taking a plea bargain is not the same as a conviction.
