Here is evidence that'd kill you at a trial:
1. You were in a car that likely smelled like alcohol.
2. You likely admitted you'd been at a bar.
3. You likely admitted to the officers you had been drinking.
4. You couldn't recall how many drinks you had consumed.
5. You fell asleep at the wheel of your car while at a red light.
6. You had difficulty maintaining balance when exiting the vehicle.
7. You refused a chemical test which could have cleared your name and proved you were legal to drive.
Put yourself in the shoes of a juror. What's the most likely explanation for all of those facts?
