Sounds like you have some arguments to make, but that doesn't mean your case will be dismissed. The key factors are still going to be what your BAC was, whether you were driving, and how your performance was on the FSTs. Minor discrepancies alone will not result in a dismissal.
While it's great that you got the video and clearly have some things to work with based on the content of the video, there is much more information needed in order to give you a valid opinion. If the case can be dismissed, hiring a DUI attorney gives you the best chance of making that happen. You can use avvo to find a few that are local to you and give them a call - most will offer a free consultation. It's also not clear if you've requested the DMV hearing or what happened on that front, so I suggest acting quickly. Good luck.
First, make sure you request a DMV license hearing within 10 days of your arrest or you may end up unwittingly waiving your hearing rights.
Next, funny how those audio/video tapes run out at just the right moment. May be useful.
Finally, the facts matter. Your take is interesting and provides something to work with, but there are still some unanswered questions. You should immediately consult with an Avvo DUI attorney in your area.
It seems as though you have some great video... My office concentrates on DUI Law in Monterey and Santa Cruz County. If you would like, give me a call to discuss your case. If you have a Public Defender, make sure to sit down with the individual and watch the video... A DUI with a Refusal can take you out of the driver's seat for one year, no driving.
