Who pays for the blood test in an OWI?
I tried doing a breathalyzer test at the police station and stopped when the machine stopped because the cop was not very descriptive on how I was to do it. Then he had me do it again and I ran out of breath. Then told me I HAD to do a blood test and took me to the hospital. At the hospital they make me do a urine sample and blood test. The cop told me this would come out of my bail/bond money. Now I am getting bills from the hospital and the pathology company that total over $300!!! Am I responsible for paying for something they made me do?

I passed a field sobriety test but a subsequent breathalyzer did not register a proper reading and I was called uncooperative.
I was stopped after being accused of backing up into a car at a stop sign. Police administered a field sobriety test which I passed. They arrested me anyway, took me to the station, where a Breathalyzer test was unsuccessful after many attempts. I was doing exactly what they asked and yet they determined that I was being "Uncooperative". I had valid license, insurance and absolutely no priors. Yet, my license was subsequently suspended for one year without even having a court date yet. This has got to be a violation of my rights. They have no proof and it is their word against mine. Who wins in a situation like that? Me, the little guy? What can I do to get my license back since I cannot work without a car and my wife cannot drive me without missing her work and she is the main income earner.

I refused the breathalizer and my took me to the hospital to get blood.It took some time to get the warrant and i think it was time sensetive because the officer kept asking the nurse to hurry up.The police did not have a account with the hospital so they put the test in my name.Would that be a hipaa violation and the test could not be used against me.
