When does the 20 minute deprivation period begin?
I was arrested for DWI a couple days ago. Looked at the officers report, which states I was stopped "at approximately 0208." Given a quick field test then taken down the street for the IR8000. Report says they "verified the 20 minute deprivation period had passed." Copy of the test results I was given shows 2:16 and 2:17, respectively. I, after being unable to reach my personal physician, was not given an opportunity or guidance on how to obtain an independant blood draw. Was told "thats the reality of the situation." Was then immediately taken to booking. How is this legal?

We got double question to see if they were fake. I'm 24 and my license stated I'm from New Mexico which was a ligit registered drivers license. The cop threatens to take our Ids away and without hesitation cuffs me. I'm later thrown in jail without having my Miranda rights read or an explanation of why being arrested.
