I was driving my car after having three beers, then my car broke down on the Interstate and I sat in the car for two hours waiting on someone. A Police Officer arrived shortly thereafter and told me he smelled alcohol on my breath. Although I had consumed three beers, hours had passed and I felt fine. The Officer asked me to do some "test" for him to see if I was safe to drive, even though my car was broke down. I refused and he locked my up saing I was intoxicated. Should I had performed the test for him or can I beat it in court seeing I did nothing on video. I have a hearing coming up in 5 days and its called an ALS hearing. What is this? Can someone help?

Your refusal is an automatic license suspension.
You need a lawyer beffore the ALS hearing (your suspension hearing). Otherwise you are going to be walking a long time.
Hire a good DUI lawyer IMMEDIATELY !! Do NOT go to ALS hearing alone!!
