I was arrested for a DUI due to failing field sobriety testing, but passed the breathalyzer at the jail. Can I be convicted?
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...

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.
Can they send him to jail? Can they get in trouble for arresting him for DUI & then in their system say it was for something els
A family friend got arrested for a DUI (of drugs). Thepolice asked him what he was on and he said klonopin.which was true. They asked if they would find any other drugs in his system. He said yes. Majauwana and heroin. He had stopped those within the week. And knew they would show up in his system. They did. But his levels showed that he was not high on them at the time of the arrest. They took him to jail. And had him being arrested for invalid drivers license. They set bond. I went to get him and he was outside. I went in to pay it and they said all charges had been dropped and that he was good to go. Next day went to bmv and his license was fine. Valid. 16 hours in jail for nothing. Almost a year later he gets a letter in mail saying they are taking him to court.what should he expect?
Get him an attorney. Too many odd facts/variables to speculate on this forum.
Can I sue a bar in Indiana that overserved me, in turn causing me to wreck into a tree and get charged with O.W.I above 0.15%
I spent the evening at one bar that i have frequented in Indiana and had several drinks. The bartender was my "friend" (even outside of her work) I had asked her to not let me leave if i seemed drunk and to call someone for me. She said ok that's not a problem. Well needless to say she did not do that and kept serving me several drinks and shots. I left the bar and 7 minutes later i hit a telephone pole and then hit a tree, totaling the vehicle, causing injury to myself and also getting a O.W.I above 0.15% No one else was involved in the wreck.
The bar could be liable if they continued to serve you alcohol when they knew that you were extremely intoxicated. I...
