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
From your fact scenario it sounds like you may have some issues to raise. I would suggest contacting a DUI attorney in...
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....

After being pulled over for speeding the officer suspected alcohol use so I was administered the basic field sobriety tests, including a portable breathalyzer. Upon the judgment of the officer, including the portable breathalyzer results, I was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. At the county jail I was administered another breathalyzer test on a large machine by a certified chemical test operator, not the arresting officer. The machine failed to read my alcohol level and the paperwork says N/A as the concentration. From what I could gather the machine was malfunctioning. My questions: Can I be convicted of DUI on the field sobriety testing alone? Are the inconclusive test results at the jail on the official machine enough to account for reasonable doubt in court?
You can be convicted based upon the field sobriety and roadside observations alone. You need to contact a local DWI...
On the 9 panel drug screen I have prescriptions for two that I test positive for. I do not know how I could test positive for a barbiturate . I only take medication for my lupus , and my fracture tail bone. Could that be s false test results . The police kept my prescription bottle even with my name on it. They said it was for evidence purposes. I am getting a print out from my phatmacy on all my meds I take
Dear Friend, It is not clear what is your question. As to false test results, that depends on a varied number of factors.
