The officer pulled me over and said I was driving too fast. I tell him I had a few drinks hours ago and I end up do the FST. I believe I did very well but was still arrested for CVC 23152 (a). My blood is taken two hours after the officer stopped me. I have only been served a notice to appear in court but not officially charged of anything. What evidence do they have against me? Can they use retrograde extrapolation to guess my BAC at the time of driving and how credible is it in court?Thank you for answering my question so far. I was asked to take a breathalyzer test after finishing the FST and asked the officer why I had to take a breathalyzer test. At this point he places me under arrest and tells me I am under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence. Once I am in the back of the officer's car he says to me "Your refusal to take the test is admittance of guilt". He searches my car and takes me away. *I never said yes or no to any breathalyzer test*
