You also suspected that she was probably using an illegal drug. And if you go suspect that he can ask her for a blood test. And even though she only blew a .02 that still may indicate operating a vehicle under the influence. It doesn't have to be .08. From the facts that YOU have stated it sounds like she may have a good case for an...
