In some states, it could not be DWI. In Minnesota, it can be. There are potentially hundreds of available defenses in DWI cases. Consult a DWI defense lawyer with the most complete set of facts available to begin to explore them. And be sure to do that immediately, since you only have 30 days to challenge the administrative license revocation ("implied consent" revocation) or it will be forever too late.
