I was asleep at the wheel at a signal and accepted to all the field tests and was hesitant to breath test told the officer that I am unable to decide and he can do whatever he feels right, to which the officer constued it as REFUSED. I told the office that I had a couple of Chimay beers before half an hour. There are no other vehicles or public damage involved. I stayed in the lockup from 2AM to 4 PM. Is it possible to contest and win? or is it possible to avoid the mandatory 24hr jail? How would this affect my job situation? What is the most likely punishment I would end up with?
