My sister was pulled over after having three beers.  The cop gave her two standard tests to see if she was drunk.  She passed the walking the line test and holding her head back.  He made her blow into a device and did not give her the numbers.  Took her to the station and had her blow in the table machine an hour and a half later.  Why would they have her blow twice?

It appears the cop gave your sister only one of the standard field sobriety tests - which compromises the test. The breath test by the road is to establish probable cause for an arrest, but is not valid unless the cop waits 20 min from the time of the stop before giving her the test per statute.
