Stopped by state patrol (SP) and given a breathalizer, I passed. Did not pass sobriety test. SP asked me to submit blood test,refused. SP had passenger drive car to a parking lot (she had no valid drivers license, SP knew this). He drove us down freeway for friend to pick us up. Did not get a citation just paperwork/drivers hearing request. 1month later get letter DOL, suspended license for 1 yr.
Why no citation from SP.
Will I still get criminal charge, it has been one month+ since incident.
Is it worth my time to do the Drivers hearing request. Would anything change.
Do I have a chance to get this dismissed or reduced to something else. Only thing is I have not been charged with anything but refusing a blood test.
Thank you for your response.
