I showed no HGN but because I didn't pass the FST the officer arrested me. I am almost 60 yrs old. I have arthritis bad enough I have trouble walking a lot of the time. It was almost 1:30am and I was in an unfamiliar town looking for the AT&T store where my boyfriend had left his truck. I was driving really slow looking for the building and the officer said I crossed the center line twice and then crossed the white line. I thought after he learned of my perplexed situation he would help me instead he saw an opportunity to arrest me. He told me I was "impaired" because I couldn't pass his Test. My eyes were fine and my speech was fine. And I know my blood test has to be negative. What are they going to do with me? I have never been so humiliated and insulted in my life.
No alcohol and no drugs in your system? The case should be dropped.

You may have a defensible case. But you should be prepared to retain a lawyer to present your side.
