I came to when they had me cuffed on the ground. They told me that's what I had done. Then they took me in for a blood test, I didn't refuse. I was very compliant with the arresting officer after the scene of course.
First of all, you should speak with a DUI attorney for a free consultation. You should be able to find a lawyer on...
I blew a .066 but chp added .o2 due to an hour had lapsed and charged me with a dui. Can I beat it?
I was in a car accident and it took chp a little over an hour to get there. I performed several field tests and blew .066 but said due to the time lapse they had to add .02 which put me over the legal limit and I was arrested and charged with misdemeanor dui.

pulled over because officer sayes he was unable to read my license plate number because the frame was in the way, yet wrote me up for failure to stop at a stop sign i have a witness that was with me who can testify that i did indeed stop at stop sign. wasnt drunk it was for dwid
If the stop was illegal, then yes, any evidence that the officer collected as a result of the stop is likely inadmissible.
