I had a dinner and some sangria with a friend the other night. I was pulled over (less than 300 ft!) for not having headlights on. I thought I did fine with FST even though I was wearing high heels. However, I was arrested after denying to use a breathalyzer because according the officer, I had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol. At the station, I did the BAC test twice, and one came out to be 0.057. I don't remember the second number exactly, but it was close. He charged me with DUI Impaired To the Slightest Degree. I want to fight the case and have the charge dropped. I get bloodshot eyes often because I have severe allergies (I get an allergy shot every week). Plus, I had been up since 4am and worked for 12 hours in front of a computer. Do I have a decent chance if I hire a lawyer?
