What are my rights at a sobriety checkpoint and what is the best way to handle an encounter with an officer at said checkpoint?
Drove into a sobriety checkpoint. Did not notice if everyone was being stopped or if there was profiling. Am over 30/M, look about 25, was alone. Trooper approached vehicle, asked "how are you doing?" Put vehicle in park, turned on overhead light, rolled window down all the way, did not turn engine off, put hands on wheel. He asked again, I said "fine, how can I help you?" He asked if I had anything to drink, I said "no". He asked where I was heading. I told him (town name).

I was arrested for dui and driving while license suspended.. but i wasnt behind the wheel and didnt have the keys & not my car.
offcMe and my friends had pulled into a parking lot looking for another friend.. the girl who owns the car jumped outta the front seat and ran inside i got out of the back seat on the drivers side and a police officer had pulled in behind the car he orders me to get in the car.. drivers side front seat and then tells me to get back out of the car.. then proceeds to give me tests and a breathalyzer.. i told him the car was not mine the owner had just ran inside to get a friend.. i didnt even have the keys to the car.. he says in his report he saw me exit the vehicle and ordered me back info the vehicle to which i complied.. and then proceeds to arrest me.. but never went inside to question the owner of the car.. the owner/driver is going to court with me to tell them i wasnt driving..
