I was pulled over for speeding in a university town shortly after leaving a nightlife area. I was speeding about 37mph in a 25mph zone. The officer asked me if I'd had anything to drink tonight and I said yes and he asked me to step out of the car. I performed field sobriety tests with the eye pupils looking one way and another way followed by the 1-legged stance counting to 30, followed by the walk a straight-line and turn around exercise. I was then asked if I wanted to give a breathalyzer and I said, "what would you do if you were me? I had one drink at this restaurant 3 hours ago and another at this restaurant and that was all that I had. 2 drinks total." And he responded something like "ok go step back in the car for me." Then another officer came up to my front seat and told me, "ok you're probably at a .04 BAC level right now. You should know that in this state the limit is .05. Please drive home slowly...like a grandma."
I had this happen to me 2 years, ago. I got pulled over when almost to my house, I could not find my license at all as well. He then asked me if I had a beer or drink and I was honest and said 2. The officer then told me if I lied about my information that I would be arrested. I told him my info, he went back to his cruiser checked the records and came back and asked me to step out of the car. I asked him for what and he then told me to put my hands behind my back. I then asked him again for what reason, I told him to give me the test and I would base with flying colors, shockingly he agreed. gave me the test, told me to go sit back in my car. As he approached I saw my wallet and told him that if he was ok with it I would reach down and grab it. He let me, I proved I was who I was, I also showed him I was not drunk and he told me it was my lucky day since his shift was almost over and I was only a mile away from home. I thought I was going to get arrested that night. To this day I will not drive after drinking at all. Its a scary thing to be pulled over and go through that test.
Just don't drink then drive
