First, I don't drink.

This was on a 2 lane Mountain road. My truck was parked in a "turn off", where people can get out of their vehicle and view the city below.
An Officer pulled in front of my truck, ordered me out, made me do a sobriety test, (on an uneven surface), another officer pulled up, they talked and decided to take me in on a DUI. I was never read my rights, But when the results of my blood test came back, all the paperwork disappeared. Even my name on the Court room rouster.
Was that arrest legal?
Interesting question, especially, if you had been driving straight and proper. Did a cop search your car right after they handcuffed you and put you in the back seat of their car, like they did me? I'm under the impression you automatically lose your right to keep them from seaching your car once you're arrested. By the way, I was read my rights.

They searched it. It was an El Camino. All there was to find was my fishing gear.

Crosstimbers....sir you are mistaken on the trooper stopping you in a municipal zone for speeding. They have state jurisdiction over any and all roads in the state whether it's county, city, or state.

The Highway Patrol divides Oklahoma geographically into thirteen "Field Troops", each comprising several counties. These Field Troops of the Highway Patrol have primary law enforcement authority on state, federal, and interstate highways, including those inside city limits.

Sure they do. But they have to write the ticket for a violation of state law, not city ordinance. That's because they don't have the authority to enforce city ordinances unless they are also commissioned by that municipality.

Sure sounds like someone was hiding something, doesn't it? From the documentation of you arrest, or the lack of documentation actually, it sounds like you were kidnapped and your kidnappers got scared and released you. Did you report your kidnapping to the FBI like a good citizen is supposed to? What state?

I have respect for all of our LEO"s.

. At the time I felt pretty suspicious of a cover up, but without records of proof there was nothing I could do about it.
. Later I heard This officer forced to resign from the force for doing the same with others.

BTW, I have a spottless Driving record. If your a LEO, I'll give you my DL# so you can check.
