Why the breathalyzer, field sobriety AND blood test (BAC)? Isn't that a little excessive? (Georgia)
Taking a friend to his car and slowing to a creep to be sure to park next to the right vehicle when a cop whipped around behind me accusing me of full stop in the roadway. I explained I had no intention of fully stopping and was about to park. Having nothing to hide and not feeling more than a bit relaxed, I agreed to a breathalyzer (I think I blew a .09 or maybe a .1, he never told me). Then he had me do field sobriety.
