Miami, FL (CNN) - 40-year-old Albert Coriat, a 14-year veteran, is finding himself on the wrong side of the force and asking highway patrol to look the other way.

It happened in the early hours of February 16th in Plantation on the Florida Turnpike. Coriat was pulled over for trying to make an illegal u-turn in his personal car.

After smelling alcohol, the Florida Highway Patrol administers a series of field sobriety tests.

They start with asking officer Coriat to stand on one leg, which he manages to do for a few seconds before stumbling.  He's then asked to walk a straight line.  Again, he appears to start off well, even turning to the officer, gesturing for approval. But on the walk back, he struggles to find his footing.

He's arrested and placed in the trooper's car.

While in the car he starts his dialogue with the officer, "Why are you doing this to me? Sir, I haven't done anything to you, sir."

Officer Coriat spends most of the ride in the trooper's car squirming in the seat, complaining about his handcuffs.

A few hours later with the sun up, Coriat is transferred to the Broward county jail. Again, he pleads with arresting trooper, even saying if the roles were reversed, he'd let the trooper go.

Coriat has been relieved of duty, pending the outcome of the criminal case.
