I took a hit of acid and went to driving till I hit a checkpoint the cop observed me say weird things and I couldn't follow
instructions on field sobriety tests I told him I only did acid and I didn't drink anything and the cop said hes arresting me for dui because you don't have to be physically impaired to be charged and mental impairment is enough and me talking about my hallucinations and not following his instructions is enough even though I didn't trip or sway. he said that he is not taking my blood because the lab doesn't test for lsd and they let me go pretty quick. do you I have a decent shot at winning at trial? how do they know that its the acid that made me hallucinate and not a medical condition or that I don't perpetually hallucinate?

On a different note is it legal for me to record police if they pull me over and ask me to get out of the car so I could have video evidence?
