Should I fight a DUI charge in which an officer arrested me after my car was broke down and I drank while waiting for the tow?
Car broke down on my way to amusement park with friends. 105 degree heat with no water but a flask in the trunk. We were waiting for about two hours. I had no idea that a Cop needed to be there before we could leave so I drank it. Threw the bottle in the ditch. The cop agreed to give us a ride to the park and smelled the booze and I told it was me and he then arrested me after blowing .11% BAC. I'm broke and can't afford an attorney. Should I fight it. Oh, and my friends had no idea I drank the fifth. What's a guy to do? Thanks.
Yes, if true you should fight it. Not sure about drinking after driving since the other people you were with didn't...
Can I get my license in MN with a bench warrant/DMV hold in CA with a misdemeanor DUI charge in LA County?

Is there a penalty for non payment of California Highway Patrol DUI Cost Recovery fees?
Invoice from CHP received in the mail to pay fees associated with a DUI over 2 years ago.
Not sure there's a penalty, but they could put it in collections or levy it against any state tax return.
How would having a couple witnesses on my side for a .08 DUI case help me??
Pulled over on campus after driving into a wrong way street (easy access parking). It was around 11 30 pm. Friends saw me through their third story dorm window and then walked down to the sidewalk close to where I was parked. Cops did all the usual testing, Field and breath test. Blew a .10 at the scene, then a .08 at station. No way I drank enough to blow that... very suspicious. Police report stated I was swerving and very unbalanced with the field tests, and my friends thought I did fine!
If you go to trial, witnesses could possibly help you. There may/should be video of you doing the FST's, your attorney...
How long does it take for the DMV to suspend your license once the scheduled DUI hearing takes place?
Got a DUI for .10 BAC and driving into a wrong way do not enter street. Friends were watching the entire time from their window, and down by the sidewalk next to my car. Cope told them to leave, but they stayed nearby. Anyway, they did feild tests and I chose the breath test. They arrested me and booked me in the County Jail. Blew a .08 twice at the station. After all that, I scheduled my DMV hearing and tried looking for good attorney. Circumstances led to me not being able to hire one due to financial reasons, and I was left to ask for a continuance. I received one from the Hearing Officer, but the hearing officer stated that I had no chance of winning this case and convincing him of keeping my license. It's looking like I will lose my license, but when?
Your license won't be suspended until you after your dmv hearing (if you lose) and they will send you a notice in the...
