my husband was arrested for DUI because he refused to take field soberity tests, breathelizer, and BAC after the officer stated they were zero tolerance. He and I did have 2 and 1/2 beers over 3.5 hour and dinner. After they arrested my husband the officer that stayed with me because I refused tests as well kept asking me to take the hand held breathilizer. I finally did and blow a .03. He was happy because now he could leave me. but if they are zero tolerance why was I not arrested and allowed to drive away?plus when I went to bail my husband the next morning, his bond was $5300 app. and the other gentleman who did blow a .09 bail was $1200. One of the officers at the jail was asked by my bondsman why the differance and he stated because of the refusal. I am angry with a system that appears to be you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent. And that appears to be utilized not to serve and protect but to raise revenue for the county and so the officer can make his quota.
