I know this story leaves a lot out. But I am trying to figure out what the probable cause Tpr. Wyrick used for the arrest of Gina Tessener. Did he smell an odor of alcohol on her, was she driving erratically, or was her speeched slurred when she was talking to him. I can not see how the trooper can articulate probable cause for a DUI arrest based on a headlight not working on her vehicle. Then when he takes her into custody and transports her to the Wrightsville Beach Police Department to perform a breath test, she passes not one but two tests with a 0.00 reading. After the breath test, this trooper then transports her to the New Hanover County Jail to appear before the duty magistrate. While this is going on another trooper then pulls over the husband of Tressener. This trooper lets the husband go after several questions. Again, what was the probable cause or violation that warranted this trooper to pull over the husband. I thought the motto for the police was To Serve and Protest, not To Harass and Annoy. If this story is true, then we all need to worry because those that abuse their positions of responsibilty are dangerous and can not be trusted. Once the trust is gone there isn't much left.
