Was I arrested with sufficient probable cause at a DUI checkpoint? Furthermore, if not, can I reverse implied consent?
He smelt alcohol in my breath (I presume this allows for detention). Initially he asked for a breath test on a portable device, I politely refused. He administered 4 FSTs, 2 standardized. (HNG, reverse counting (104 to 56), alphabet starting at E, 1 leg balance). I'm certain that I did well on all tests except for having to set my foot down on the balance test after roughly 20 seconds. This is only 1 sign of the 4 signs; 2 signs are required to establish probable cause if I recall correctly. I was given implied consent warning in the squad car, implying a breath test would be taken on the portable breath test. I thought portable breath tests were only used to establish probable cause so I refused. Was he digging for probable cause? Or did he already establish enough to arrest me?

Can DUI sentences change from state to state?
My boyfriend is a former Ohio resident who recently moved to Missouri, while in Ohio he obtained 3 DUI's and received a 5 year suspension on his drivers liceanse, he is halfway through his suspension but was recently told by Missouri DMV that his suspension is now 10 years because he resides in Missouri.

What does it mean when the state files a motion "in limine" before a trial in a dui case?
