I was recently stopped by the Show Low Police who hang out by 260 and the Deuce of Clubs every day and every night when I got in my truck I was on my way to Safeway and I exceeded the limit by 12 mph and they stopped me.
They gave me a warning and then arrested me for DUI.
I was handcuffed and taken to jail and handcuffed to a bench for three hours because I refused to give them my blood because I felt that what they did was malicious. They yelled at me and told me that I can use the Internet to find my lawyer.
I left my phone at home with my lawyers name on it and he kept yelling at me you have five more minutes.
Then I was re-chained back to a bench and I waited for three hours because they had to get a subpoena. He came back later with the subpoena and told me he can make the numbers look whatever he wanted them to look like. That to me seem like I had no rights.
When they finally took me to Summit Hospital a nurse through my blood and I asked for a private sample and she refused. When I asked him if I could have one he said no. So I did not have a private sample to bring to my lawyer.
He then ignored me when I asked him who is handling the blood.
Finally he said he was. I said that is not lawful you should not be handling evidence. And he asked me don’t you trust your police force? I responded absolutely not I don’t trust you.
I don’t know what other system allows people trying to prosecute you to handle the evidence. After they forced me to give my blood I had to go back to the police car and I asked him to take me somewhere where I could get an independent blood sample he got really upset should me back to Summit and said get out find your own ride.
I went into the hospital and I asked for a private blood sample and they refused.
Nobody else was open to help me I told him I had a right to get my own private blood sample the hospital admission gentleman on Friday that day said they could admit me but the doctor would probably not help me. When I asked him to put that down in writing he refused.
They then told me to get out and get a ride and go home. That was Summit Hospital. I plead we need to start a citizens group to stop them or they will.
