What are the consequences of giving a false statement to police while intoxicated?
My boyfriend and i had gone out and I got extremely intoxicated to the point I don't recall bits and pieces of the night. I do remember getting mad because I didn't want to leave the bar. I had fallen on the way to the truck. While my boyfriend was driving I tried to pull the keys out of the ignition multiple times he had to stop quickly and I had no seatbelt on and hit the dashboard. He was able to put my seatbelt on me and dropped me off at home. I was emotional, extremely mad and intoxicated. I'm not sure if I called the police but the cop showed up at my house and I accused my boyfriend of assault which is not true. My boyfriend came over a few days later and the cops showed up and arrested him. He is currently facing assault in the 3rd degree,threatening 2nd degree, and unlawful restraint. I have no history or arrests but I need to make this right. I have been sober for 1 year and he is a great guy who doesn't deserve this mess I've caused when I was drinking.

Where do i begin to find someone to defend me in Connecticut for a dwi and reckless driving .
Charged with DWI and reckless driving in Connecticut. Went out of state just for a black friday sale . I have a Rhode Island Medical Marijuana card and had stuff on me because a friend of mine who is also has his MMC came with us . That was the last time i smoked that night , my friend and my girlfriend took a couple hits before leaving the store to go home an hour away. I did not because i was driving . I was pulled over for going 20 over the speed limit on 395 on a straight away trying to get home, i didnt realize i was going that fast . Id like to get the reckless driving dropped to a speeding ticket seeing it was my first offence in Connecticut. As for the dwi , i didnt even smoke . I passed the sobriety test . I refused a drug test at the staion because inevitably its in my system , i have a medical card . I dont want that used against me. I told the officer i smoked over 2 hours before. After repeatedly asking me he said so when did you smoke , a half hour ago? Frazzled i responded yeah, wait no ! I said 2 hours ago ! He said got you on recording and arrested me . Ive been trying to better myself since i messed up at 18 and i was put on probation till im 30.

How can I be charged with a refusal if I was taken to two PD and both machines did not read properly?
I took 4 test in total the breathalyzer read processing failed at both stations
The cops got angry and thought that you were not doing the test properly? That is usually how it happens in my experience.
