Ingham County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Lisa McCormick said a court date hasn’t been set for Genetski, a Republican from Saugatuck.

Genetski was ticketed Jan. 19 in East Lansing.

McCormick said Genetski refused to take a Breathalyzer at the scene and was arrested. A blood-alcohol test was taken later.

Genetski was also given a warning about excessive speed and driving on an expired license plate.

Genetski, who said he refused the Breathalyzer test because he believes he passed a field sobriety test, calls the experience “humbling.”

Defense attorney Mike Nichols said his client “still believes he was safe and sober.”
