Third DUI offender and sentenced for the third one. 18 months of time completed and now I am out and on my own completely.

I was arrested today due to me falling asleep behind the wheel. The officer administered a dui field test which he said I failed all 3 test. He arrested me and said I needed to take the breathalyzer. I refused to take the test so he issued a search warrant and was signed for by the judge to take blood. I took the blood test and stayed in Jail from approx. 3:25 am to noon today. The officer never took my license but the court date is may 21st. What steps should I take in resolving this issue? The paper work shows the wrong time for the blood test and wrong date, they took the test with a camcorder.
Big trouble ahead Hire counsel.
