Marc BS: Beat the breathalizer? (130* d) RE: BS: Beat the breathalizer? 17 Dec 00


I may get slapped for saying this but I will.Mind you I don't condone drunk driveing but the laws are not fair. I also was stupid many years ago, pled guilty, took my lumps, learnd my lesson, and proceeded to try to get on with my life. Being a proffessional musician, I find myself on the road late at night all the time. Having long hair and a beard, i'm allways getting pulled over, which is very anoying. About six months agoI was on my way home from a gig in Ct.,(I live in RI), when I got pulled over again. The trooper in the customary rude manner asked had I any thing to drink.Not having anything to hide I told him I had had 1 beer after coming of stage, which was the truth. Well in his opinion I failed the field test so I was halled in. Insisting that I was not drunk, when he offered me the breathalizer I agreed to take it. He then told that Ct. had a new law that said, any alchohol what so ever could be used to c0onvict a prior offender. and that he didn't think it was a good idea for me to take the test. I've since found out his information was inaccurate, however I followed his advice. Now I'm $5,000 into a case where i'm totaly innocent, I expect to spend another $5,000, and I never did anything wrong. I have mad mothers harrasing me at court and calling my house, all i'm doing is trying not to go to jail for something I didn't do, and its costing me dearly both financialy and imotionaly.
