she should submit to blood testing if she is being looked at with suspicion of drunk driving. By refusing the blood test, she is opening herself up to liability just on the basis of the refusal
Expert:  Michael Bradley replied 2 months ago.
It usually does not help you to refuse to take a blood, breath, or urine test when you are arrested for a DUI. In New Hampshire, the consequences for a first DUI include $500 fines, an impaired-driver intervention program, and suspension of your license for 9 months. You have to go to jail too if you have had more than one DUI. These consequences are more severe than refusing a chemical test. Still, refusing the test does not guarantee that you won’t be convicted – you could be found guilty of a DUI even if your refusal means that the state does not have proof that your BAC was over.08%, the legal limit for those over 21. In fact, the prosecution can use your refusal against you by arguing that you refused the test because you knew that you were intoxicated and guilty of DUI.

They asked if she would do a breathalyzer

I'm assuming she should

The way the law is set up, if they make a request for a breathalyzer or blood sample, it is much better to give the sample then to refuse. The refusal has pretty significant ramifications in and of itself
