Charged with drunk driving despite not having a drink?

You were out, going about your day or night as usual, and then it happened. While driving along a Pennsylvania road you saw lights flashing behind you and were being pulled over -- but for what?

Knowing you had not had anything to drink that day, you were certain the investigation would turn up nothing, but instead you ended up being arrested due to a high Breathalyzer test readout -- how could this be?
