Legally Refusing Questions at a DUI Checkpoint Leads to Arrest and Illegal Search of Sober Man’s Belongings

Sennett Devermont, of, shared the following video of a DUI checkpoint encounter in 2011.

As I went through a DUI Checkpoint, I told the officer, as it was my right, that I did not want to answer his leading questions. As a result, he, apparently, got a whiff of alcohol. He asked me to step out of the car, where I was humiliated and harassed by multiple officers. They misinformed me of my rights and eventually had me blow into a breathalyzer, which I did twice. I blew 0.00 both times.
