Was I arrested with sufficient probable cause at a DUI checkpoint? Furthermore, if not, can I reverse implied consent?
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...

Out of state dui
I move from Kansas City mo to Texas 8 months ago did not transfer my Kansas City license to Texas license. So I still have the Kansas City drivers license I got pulled over for dui in Texas but had my Kansas City license, I got a dui when I was in Kansas City 3 years ago they gave me a suspended sentence and put me on probation for 2 which every thing went clear so would the dui I got in Kansas City count has 1 or second dui ? Because when I tried to call the dmv in Kansas City to find out info on my driving record they said it did not show any record of me being convicted for the first DUI?

Will I violate probation? What typically happens?
I've had my ignition interlock device for almost a year (10 months) and I have had no issues with it. Last week I blew before work and it failed me. I blew again after a few minutes and I passed. I was too afraid to retest and get locked out or something so I decided to have a friend drive me to work. I haven't drank in a year and a half. I live in Missouri.
If you passed very shortly after you had a failure, it should not end with you being violated for the one failure....
