So i was drunk at a downtown bar and i somehow went to the bars basement and urinated im the corner. Nobody saw that but the cops came and arrested me and took me in. I posted my bail and was let out. My question is if my citation says court not mandatory does that mean if i pay the fine I am ol and won't have to go to court? Im not from that city.
That's probably what that means. Call the court clerk during business hours and ask. Be more careful in the future...
I got a DUI a few days back. It's my first, and I guarantee my only because of how terrible I feel about it. I have no intention of drinking any time soon. I've never had anything more than a few simple traffic violations. I've never been much of a drinker. I went out with the intention of crashing at some friends places. Things turned ugly that night and I don't remember everything but I obviously ended up driving.

Absolutely. You do not need to be "caught in the act" to be arrested for any offense, though probable cause to believe...
A local tavern where I live (Wisconsin) takes & scans IDs from all customers on entrance. Can Police monitor this, a person's name & address, then wait & watch near their home, in hopes of an OWI / DUI arrest? Is this legal?
Is this a fact, or are you asking a hypothetical question? Police can monitor taverns (they do it all the time) and...
First time OWI/DUI and I am not at risk of jail time. This should be a misdemeanor offence right? If I plea not guilty, do I get a public defender? What are the financial qualifications? Does living arrangement matter? I live with my parents and am dependent on them; will my parent's income be a factor or is it solely MY income? I don't want to plea not guilty and then realize I don't have a public defender. Can I get a public defender to go to the arraignment?
First time OWI is not a criminal offense in Wisconsin unless there is a passenger under 16 in the car. You mention that...
