Is passing 2 breathalizer tests and a field sobriety test probable cause to request a blood test? and arrest for refusing it ?
6 miles from home officer thought person was dozing off at intersection and pulled them over. had not been drinking, but was sleep deprived, passed 2 breath test and field test. then they harassed and said hey man tell us what your on, it will make it much better on you to just tell us man come on tell us, were your friend man come on what did you take. didn't take anything , so they wanted to go to hospital and take a blood test, but refused, why i just proved to reasonable standards that i wasn't intoxicated and explained i was functioning on very little sleep, asked if they just follow me home since i passed the tests, and they said they only place your going is the hospital or jail, so a dui is chargeable without any evidence, but i cant prove innocent with passing all the tests

Will I be charged with both minor consumption and public intoxication, or just one?
I was at a tailgate and approached for underage consumption. The ticket stated something along the lines of "Did commit the offense of minor consumption, pursuant to statute 7.1-5-1-3." Since that statute that is referenced is for public intoxication (which I don't believe I was, they had me blow a breathalyzer but since I had just taken a sip of beer when approached it read as above ,40 which is a BAC that would kill even an experienced drinker, let alone a minor). I had two beers, which would be about a .075 BAC. I was just wondering if I would only be charged with the minor consumption, or just the public intoxication, and if I'm charged with both can I enter a deferral program that will wipe both of those off my record?
No one can tell you what you will be charged with, however, you can be charged with both if the facts fit both crimes....

Wondering if someone with an HTV (suspended for 10 yrs) can petition the court without having to wait 5 full years now in 2015?
Does a person who suffers a mandatory ten year driver's license suspension (separate from court) have to wait five years (without a driving offense) before petitioning the court for a probabtionary license for work? I heard the rule was repealed at the start of 2015 and want to verify. If this person is allowed to petition through court and a probabtionary license is issued, is it possible this person can drive children around in the vehicle if going to and from their school? They recieved an HTV due to 4 arrests for DUI's in the last 10 yrs. What the court may not know when this person is petitioning is that this person lost custody of their son due to them drinking and driving with a child in their vehicle.
Technically they may be eligible for Special Driving Pivileges, which is the new name for a probationary license. If...
