Q: I was completely hammered drunk, speeding 92 mph going home at 2am. I flew by a police officer and I voluntarily pulled
I was completely hammered drunk, speeding 92 mph going home at 2am. I flew by a police officer. I am a 34 year old woman.
He saw empty beer cans, asked to perform an FST. Toe to heel.
Tells me I failed.
Asked me where I lived.
"1 mile away."
Told me he did not record the FST on cam.
Said he would follow me home and give an open container violation.
I get home, walk to my front door, and the he shouts to me.
Asks me to approach his car. And, very quieltly asks if I have a boyfriend (I say no) then he tells me he wants to stay connected.
I offer up social media, but he would prefer my number.
I give him my number.
IS THIS LEGAL?!?!?!
A: Your drunk driving and speeding are not legal. However, there is no law requiring an officer to arrest you.
