Chicago, IL asked in DUI / DWI for Kentucky

Q: Will a dui stick if the cops came and got me out of bed 30 minutes after I got home, with no keys on the vehicle?

My wife went to town and someone called my truck in for swerving, this was 30 minutes after she got home, we were in bed, there were no keys in anything. The police said they had a report of that truck swerving 30 minutes before. My wife said she went to town, but we were already laying down in the bed by the time they arrived. They came in the house and tried to make her take a Breathalyzer but I told her she didn't have to because she was at home in the bed already. The cop put her in handcuffs and toile her to jail. There were no keys in any vehicles, no one driving any vehicles, and no one saw her driving, my wife had just said she went to town earlier. She didn’t take a breathalyzer, because she was at home in the house, and in bed. We live in a small hick town where the cops try to do whatever they want. They arrest everyone for everything and make them fight it out in court later, which costs a lot of money. I live in kentucky.
