Birchfield DUI question
I was recently charged with a 3rd tier DUI. The initial stop was for high beams. The arrest report mentions that I smelled of alcohol but doesn't mention swerving, slurred speech, blood shot eyes etc. I was in control. However, I did (stupidly!) mention that I might have had too many. I also can show a bar tab that shows an amount of beer that combined with my body weight, time elapsed, etc would put me under .08. I can produce a bank statement which shows that it was the only place that I was at that night. If the results of the blood test are thrown out they would have no choice but to charge me with general impairment? It's easy to prove that I drank that night which I would freely admit, but it seems to me that proving in front of a jury that I was over .08 that night might be difficult. Would I have a shot at challenging if the charge gets reduced? Thanks
