I wrecked a motorcycle in May. The arresting office gave me a field soberity pen test after I told him I had no helmet on.
I failed the field soberity test. I was arrest and once got to the station the cop gave me a breathalyzer. The cop then let me go I was in handcuffs maybe 1/2 hr. The arresting officer then went to church 2 days after and told my wives family that I was arrested for DUI. Which isnt on my record because I got a wreckless op and the DUI was dropped in court. After the cop told my wife's family about that they contacted us about if it was true. My wife then started to tell me how big of an embarassment I was and how we are going be judged and looked at after all this is settled. It got so bad and stuff she actually has told me she wants a divorce and she had me to move out. Now I am losing sleep at night over all this extra stress not just losing my marriage.
