Hi, I'm Zepsinger. I just had my first Field Sobriety Test.

So I'm pulling into Lansing KS last Saturday night at about 6pm... my band had a gig at a local bar just east of Leavenworth. I look in the rearview mirror and see the cop cherries- crap.

So, I pull over. Cop asks me like 3 times where I'm from and where I'm going- it seemed pretty obvious he was trying to catch me in a non-truth. Tells me he clocked me at 60 in a 50. OK, not the end of the world- I've had more than a few of those in my time.

Suddenly, he says 'sir, have you had any alcohol tonight? I smell alcohol on your breath.' I say no, then remember that I had had one 12oz. beer with pizza at 2:30. So I tell him as much. Then- 'sir, you'll need to step out of your car'. And then I get the battery of tests- follow the little blue light with my eyes, heel-to-toe 9 steps out and back, lift one foot with arms at the side while counting (by the way- those tests are fairly hard to do even when stone cold sober IMO). Backup arrives. Here comes the breathalyzer. He informs me that I can refuse to take the test, but doing so carries a charge in itself. I know I have nothing to worry about, so I say sure. He then says to wait in my car for the results.

I text the other guitarist to tell him I might be late. Or I might not be able to be there at all. The cop comes back and says 'your BAC is less than .01. KS legal limit is .08. You are obviously well under the limit. But here's your speeding ticket. Have a good evening.'

57 years old and my first field sobriety test. Even though I knew I was going to be OK, it still freaked me out a bit(and sorta ruined my night). I dunno, I've heard from many people that you should never submit to these tests- being a FST virgin, I just didn't know what to do for sure. I knew I wasn't going to test drunk, so I felt pretty safe in taking the test. Maybe that was stupid, I don't know. I'm assuming that some of you CP'ers have experienced this honor as well? What have you done in this situation?

Don't have a choice to refuse the tests in CO apparently. From the police report of the cocksucking asshole drunk driver that hit my son this weekend:

Quote:
I explained Colorado Express Consent Law to Joshua. Joshua refused to complete either a blood or breath test. I asked Joshua if he understood that, by refusing to take either test, his driver's license would be revoked for a period of at least one year. Joshua replied that he understood.
I've done a field sobriety test before (smell of alcohol from passengers), and they are a bitch.

Sounds like you played it cool. So If you refuse, do they haul you downtown? Surely they don't just let you drive off?

That's the thing- if you refuse, they take you to the station, interrogate some more, maybe I'd have to hire a lawyer, etc. I could've refused on principal, but doing so would've really screwed up my night, when I knew I had nothing to worry about in the first place. A couple more beers under the belt tho, and man, I don't know which path I'd have taken...

Did the little drunk douche have insurance? Glad your son is ok as well.

If you get pulled over and are not doing anything wrong, just tell the cop that you want to do the breath test right away so that you can get on with your night.

That happened at a checkpoint while I was DD for my wife and her friends. The cop looked at me after I told him that and told me to have a good night.

In KS if you refuse you lose your lisence for not taking the test and are arrested. Never happened to me, but know someone who did.

Just found out today, only because he's insured through a subsidiary of my insurance agency. The asshole refused to give the cops any information. Now he's lying to his own insurance agent (who was shocked to know he was arrested and that their was a police report). I'm guessing this is the turd's 2nd or 3rd offense:
