Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you took the breath test and blood test and passed and they had no probable cause for the arrest, then you can indeed challenge anything they found during the search of your vehicle on the impound search since they did not have probable cause to impound the car.
I would hope you have an attorney at this point to challenge the evidence by filing a motion to suppress the evidence since the vehicle was towed and impounded without any probable cause since you were not intoxicated and they had no legal basis to arrest you.
