Q: I was pulled over for a dui. When taking samples there was no clear recording. Can this be used against me?
A: Generally it will not help you as some police departments don't even have a video in the station and some don't even have in car videos. I suggest you speak with an experienced DWI Lawyer to see what if any better defense you have in your case. Most of us DWI lawyers offer a free in office consultation, I suggest you set one up ASAP.
Leon Matchin agrees with this answer
A: It can be asserted to be a refusal. The police can convict based on the SFST tests at the scene without a breath test. If you were charged with DWI and Refusal that would be a strong indication.
