Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I would like to assist you with your question today.
You may have a basis to file a false imprisonment/arrest case against the officer who arrested you, the difficult part about your case is that you have the burden to prove that the officer lacked probable cause
when he arrested you. Courts
routinely hold that poor driving coupled with some other indicia of impairment is sufficient for probable cause. What you want to do is to obtain copies of the arrest report, video of your stop (if it exists) and copies of the radio broadcast related to your stop. Then have an experienced civil rights attorney review those along with any other information you have and advise you as your options for your specific case.
You also have the option of filing a complaint
with the police department complaining about the officer's rude behavior and arrest of you when you tested zero. This may result in him being disciplined which provide you with some satisfaction.
I hope that I have answered your question. Please let me know if you have more questions or need more information.
