This was my first offense ever. I complied with the field sobriety tests and breathalyzer test but the officer said I wasnt doing it right and instructed me to do it again. It still did not read properly so he turned me around and slammed my head into the hood of my car and cuffed me saying I was resisting arrest.. He said the other officers present would testify for him and that I would never see the video of the arrest. I was sitting in the police car and got out of my handcuffs. The officers told me to step out of the car. I did get out of the car and they tazed me. At the station I was so upset from the abuse I had suffered I refused the blood test. Eventually it was taken from me anyway. In the meantime I was held for hours without a phone call or water.
