If pulled over and asked by police to blow into a breathlizer. How many number attempts does the police officer show you result
pulled over for driving to close to highway line. Blew into breathlizer 3 times, and not shown results. Police then agitated, tell me to blow with force, and obtain a reading and show results.

What can I expect for non compliance with ASAP for second dwi?
I received a show cause summons that states 4 months and 20 days sentence/ $500 fine. I have had 2 other programs to complete during the same time. I completed the other two programs. I also have a letter from my case worker that recommended that I be reinstated into the program. I have a full time job that I work 6 days a week. My shift starts at 3:40-12:20.

It is possible but not certain. Retain a lawyer in case they arrest you on the bench warrant. The magistrate is...

This isn't really a legal question, but here is what I would tell a client or a family member. As a social worker you...
I have a capias for a fta for an asap violation in Newport News Va. If I turn myself in will I have to go to jail ?
I was literally homeless until very recently. I still do not have any money to pay for vasap or my other fines yet, either.
