After he was placed under arrest, and taken to the police station, they asked him to sumbit to a breath test. Mr. Schroyer decided to refuse this test, and told the officers "The last time I did that they told me I had so much alcohol in my blood that I should have been dead. I think that machine was wrong. That’s why I’m here today. I am going to fight it. I got a hell of a tolerance, I guess,”
