I was arrested this past weekend for a DUI. I was told I wouldn't get out until I stood in front of a judge.
Two hours later they tell me it's my lucky day and they w.o.p.ed the charges. I asked them why and they said the DA didn't see any reason to file further charges. Why would they do that and what legal action should I take?
