I was arrested for a DUI. The arresting officer said that I was pulled over for being on the wrong side of the road. By this he means, when I turned left my driver side tires crossed the yellow line of the turning lane for opposing traffic on the street I was turning onto. The cop said he smelled alcohol and I explained that it was my passenger. I was asked to step out of the car while looking for proof of insurance. I've never had anything more than a fix it ticket . I know I had an anxiety attack, because I vaguely remember the line walk. I remember the rest clearly. At the station I blew a 0.079 and requested a blood test and was denied. I need to know how to get a copy of the video. I don't think I was given the option to remove my heels. The walk was the only test. I plan to fightI have severe anxiety attacks (I was sobbing uncontrollably as soon as I was put in the cop car) , induced asthma (stress or heavy exercise triggers my asthma and I was unable to complete 4 of the 5 breathing attempts I was told to do), and bone spurs in my feet (which make it difficult to walk in heels for a long period of time due to the pain, which is what I had been doing that evening). All of my ailments can be confirmed by my doctors. I also have menstrual cramps so painful that I pass out. I may have mentioned taking a lortab but had done so 6 hrs prior.
