What's the penalty? Up here the penalty is the same for refusal as it is for failing. The difference is you can go to trial and try to prove your innoncence if you refuse, but if you fail outright you're fucked because you've given them the required evidence.

Personally, I detest drunk driving, but the idea that you're required by law to provide evidence against yourself is craziness.
The penalty is the same in theory, but if you already have a dui on your record, it can backfire since it can be seen as avoiding detection due to the the subject knowing he or she is guilty. Deals worked out for avoiding jail time, reduction community service, reduction in license revocation, or getting a provisional license with the ignition interlock, can be off the table and the court and/or jury (if it goes to trial) may throw the book at you. Additionally the police can obtain a search warrant with probable cause and tie you down to a table and take a blood sample.

Side note: since the cops found the open container, I'm guessin they administered the took the breath test an hour+ later because alcohol levels rise after recent consumption. On the scene he still would have been way above the limit, but wait an hour and walla, double or double+ the legal limit.

In Illinois my sister refused to blow and it was an automatic license suspension. But got a lawyer and plead down to a lesser charge and had the dui dropped, gave her her license back with consent to a breathalyzer in the car for 1 year

I know someone here who refused to blow, got a one yer license suspension, but just a traffic violation and no criminal charge.

Is he a felon, or did the other charges all get dropped down? I haven’t heard or read anything saying if he’s legally allowed to have the gun in the car.

I have seen this video a few times. Here are my thoughts:

1. We have no evidence that Jon was driving drunk. He said he had been driving earlier but we don't know how much earlier. It is completely possible that he was driving sober, stopped for a few drinks, and then was waiting until he sobered up to drive again.

2. Jon did not appear intoxicated in the video. Nervous, but not intoxicated.

3. We see no evidence of a weapon in the video. Where is this shell casing that was supposedly found?

My cousin refused to blow and got the charge reduced to reckless driving (a misdemeanor, while DUI is a felony).
Dui is only a felony if a collision is involved and bodily injury is involved, otherwise it is a misdemeanor. There are other laws state to state which can make a misdemeanor a felony dui like "x" amounts of dui's within a period of time (10 years is pretty standard), but otherwise it's a misdemeanor.

dyslexic! he's just lazy, no more excuses! now, Jon, go to your room and don't come out until you've finished your home work!
Jon should start by counting all his failed PED tests then move onto counting the crimes he's committed, but if he struggles with that he can go back to counting how many pregnant women he's hit while driving.

Nope. Depends on the state
