I was recently pulled over and arrested for an OVI. It was 1:30 in the morning and I was pulled over for my license plate light being out. I had to do field sobriety tests and then was handcuffed and taken to the police department. When I got to the station I took a breathalyzer test and I blew a 0.23. My arresting officer was shocked at how high the test was, I am 5'7'', female and weigh 130 lbs. He even stated that he didn't know how I was functioning so well with that high of a result. He went on to say how he has seen grown men passed out and unable to function at that level. Could it be possible that the breathalyzer gave a faulty result? Is this something I could use in court? No prior record, was very polite and compliant. Should I hire a lawyer? How should I plea?
