State Rep. Bob Genetski's attorney says he passed field sobriety tests


EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State University police have released the full dashcam video that shows State Rep. Bob Genetski being pulled over and arrested for drunk driving.

After taking field sobriety tests — which his attorney said he passed — and refusing to take a breathalyzer test at the scene, Genetski was arrested.

Officer: "So you're telling me you're going to refuse this, then?"
Genetski: "Yeah. I'm not taking your test."
Officer: "OK, that's fine. Face that way for me. Hands behind your back. You're under arrest for operating while intoxicated."
