Is this some type of misconduct?
I received a 3rd dwi in metairie in may of 2011 and now I'm going for my final status update on jan 25th. The cop that arrested me quit the force and moved to another state. It took them 4 yrs to get him here to testify for motions. They have no clue where any video tape is and disregarded my testimony about being threatened by another cop that "If you don't blow, we going to strap you down and take your blood". So I was forced to blow. The judge is allowing my results. Here is the catcher. The judge asked the prosecutor some questions about a court date and he lied to the judge about the cop cooperating to come to court. This is by far the complete opposite. They had to threaten him with an attachment if he doesn't show. This was all said on record. This makes me question the tape. Where is it? Is that cop on there threatening me so they are hiding evidence?

Can I be prosecuted even though I passed breathalyzer and no blood was drawn, along with no miranda rights read to me?
Officer pulled me over asked me if I was under the influence of anything I said yes. A muscle Relaxer taken after a long days work. No field sobriety test given, and the ticket I was given said the offices dashboard camera was off. Officer forced me to go to ER against my will since I have no insurance. Leaving the ER the officer cuffed me and threw me in his State police SUV, then he proceeded to conduct a violent search which involved slamming me against his car multiple times and tearing my clothes apart looking for drugs I suppose. I thought he was bringing me home but instead I arrived at county jail having never had read my miranda rights or told what I was being arrested for. I can't afford a lawyer but I can't let them get away with this one. I've never even had a speeding ticket
Miranda does not have to be read to you unless you are in custody and being interrogated, which does not sound like...
