Sarasota, FL -- FHP Trooper Scott Kunstmann's dash camera was rolling when he pulled over 71-year-old Robert Culbertson on I-75 back in 2011.
Culbertson was allegedly weaving, so Kunstmann asked a series of questions to determine if a field sobriety test was warranted, and asked another trooper for assistance.
Culbertson admitted to having one beer three hours prior. In the police report, Kunstmann indicated he smelled alcohol on Culbertson's breath, but in the dash cam video, the two officers are heard on tape agreeing that they couldn't smell alcohol.
Kunstmann arrested Culbertson anyway, but didn't realize at the time he was a former criminology professor, who would later contact an attorney.
