Legal Question

Can they convict me of a DUI if I wasn't caught nor driving, and they arrested me inside my house, and entered it without a warrant? My car tuned off cause I shifted gears wrong at the entrance of my neighborhood, then a guy came behind me got out of the car and knocked on my window, I said what turned on my car and went home. I put my car in the garage closed it and 10 minutes later the police showed up I opened the door they came in stating that someone called them saying I was driving drunk, and demanded I do a brethalizer test. I said why are you in my house you can't come in here without a warrant and they didn't care. Long story short once I refused the test the cuffed me right in my living room and charged me with a DUI and refusal. Can they convict me of this? It's ridiculous! It's in Richmond VA.
