Wapello County, Iowa.  Client's operating while intoxicated charge was amended the morning of trial to reckless driving after the State was presented with a form indicating that the client blew .000 on the Datamaster.  The State had not been provided the form prior to trial by the officer because the officer claimed the client refused to submit to chemcial testing.  Upon being provided this form and learning that the client had also requested to do a urine test which the officer did not allow, the State agreed to amend the charge to reckless driving.
