It’s not against the law to have a drink and drive. It’s only a crime to drink and drive if your blood-alcohol level (BAC) is above .08 on a properly administered, properly calibrated Breathalyzer machine, or a blood or urine test, or if your normal faculties are impaired by drugs.
To gain a conviction, the state must prove several things. The most important of these are that the arresting officer had probable cause to believe you were impaired, that police officers followed proper procedures, and that your rights were not infringed.
