I had been charge on a ticket for minor possession of alcohol, can the charges be dropped if I plead not guilty?

I was at my mothers apartment when this had happened. My brother got real drunk and started to get physical with my mom boyfriend. So I had held him down to prevent any further violence. My mom called the cops to take my brother away and the cop tooked out the breathalyzer and did a pbt on me and I blewed 0.6. The point is that the cop had no reason to do a pbt on me and I felt like he was forcing me to take it. He just tooked the breathalyzer right in my face and kept telling me to blow on it. Would they dropped the charges if I tell them this? Plus, they let my brother go away with no charge

Given the difficult situation that you are now in, I suggest that you consult with a criminal defense attorney as to the best way to try and resolve the matter against you. If you cannot afford an attorney, then possibly the public defender will be appointed to represent you in your matter.

There is always the possibility that the charge against you could be dropped if you plead not guilty. Whether that happens down the line is an unknown presently. what the district attorney's office wishes to do concerning your matter as well as your brother's is an unknown. Consulting with a criminal defense attorney is in your best interests.
