Diagnosed with acid reflux. Can acid reflux cause a false reading on a breath test?

I was diagnosed with acid reflux about 3 years ago, a year ago I was stopped and charged with a DUI the thing is that I was not drinking. I had just eaten bacon and eggs with hot sauce. I was just over the legal limit on the breath test . I told them I had acid reflux, but they did not accept my statement. Can acid reflux cause a false reading on a breath test?
