He smelt alcohol in my breath (I presume this allows for detention). Initially he asked for a breath test on a portable device, I politely refused. He administered 4 FSTs, 2 standardized. (HNG, reverse counting (104 to 56), alphabet starting at E, 1 leg balance). I'm certain that I did well on all tests except for having to set my foot down on the balance test after roughly 20 seconds. This is only 1 sign of the 4 signs; 2 signs are required to establish probable cause if I recall correctly. I was given implied consent warning in the squad car, implying a breath test would be taken on the portable breath test. I thought portable breath tests were only used to establish probable cause so I refused. Was he digging for probable cause? Or did he already establish enough to arrest me?
A review of the entire arrest affidavit would be needed to figure out your concerns about probable cause. I suspect...

In Missouri on 10/05/14 I was in a parking lot of a motel when police pulled in and utimately took me in at approximately 1:30 or so am. Several civial rights of mine were abused. I was charged I thought with a DWI according to the county court there are no charges pending a court date as of yet 1/11/14. I instanty moved forward with a restricted licence and satop as well as the interlock. I called the licence bureau interactive response hotlime and it states I have no pending or action against my license. My question is can i legally remove this interlock or do I just leave it on for the 6 months. I am not trying to bring any attention to myself and I am seeing the statue of limitations to be one year if I am correct. Any advise is appreciated. Thank you very much

My husband has a DWI offense conviction. He won the administrative hearing in Missouri, no license suspension or revocation. Not on Limited Driving or Restricted Driving Privileges. Court ordered IID on any vehicle he operates as part of probation. We have two cars, his name is on both Titles (cannot just be my name alone on my car due to credit). Will they expect two IIDs, one on each car even though he will be driving only the one car?
That depends on what the order said. For example, in NY it is owns or operates. Therefore it would be both cars. You...
Most DWI courts require the conviction to be a felony. However, if the charge is a class B felony statute number 577.010 states that the offender must serve two years in prison before probation or parole is granted. The two years would either be associated with a DOC Long Term Treatment Program or it would be a straight DOC sentence for X # of years. I'm assuming that after doing either of these one wouldn't be able to go into DWI court but if anyone can provide clarification or details about this I would greatly appreciate it.
I can't answer this question for every DWI Court in Missouri. In St. Louis County and St. Charles County they will...
I was backed into by a comercial truck driver at a gas station after dinner in MO. The police arrived after a 1/2 hour and told me that I was on private property and they could only oversee the exchange of information. While running my information they discovered that I have a previous dui conviction and asked me to perform the gaze test and PBT. They then arrested me based on probable cause and asked me to perform a breathalyzer. I refused based on the fact that I was already under arrest and had 2 glasses of wine at dinner. My question is, is a rising BAC defense appropriate due to the fact that I wasn't observed driving, the test was performed well after the actual event, and I refused to blow? Also, under what grounds could I have the refusal overturned?
This is a set complex questions that needs to be answered after a complete review of all of the evidence in your case....
