TMZ Sports obtained the Terrell Suggs arrest video -- in which the NFL star is adamant he had NOT been drinking and challenges the cop to "do your little tests."
For the record, he passed.
We broke the story ... Suggs was arrested in Scottsdale Friday morning after crashing his BMW into a wall and allegedly leaving the scene (which Suggs adamantly denies). He was also popped for driving on a suspended license.
During the arrest, Suggs explains why he wasn't the one who contacted police after the crash.
"If you ain't did your research, I am an athlete ... We do kind of got a bad rep right now but driving without a license still ain't good, they'll see it as a DUI or whatever."
Again, cops determined Suggs was NOT drunk ... but he was taken to a nearby jail where he was booked.
Suggs has since apologized on Instagram ... saying, "My bad Y'all.. Dumb Ass SiZ."
