Can I be charged with a DUI if I wasn't given a ticket?
I was stopped late night by the police who gave me a field sobriety test (touching the finger, walking in a straight line, holding one leg up and following his finger with my eyes). It seems that I passed all of them. Then I took a breathalyzer test blowing 0.088. I maintained that I hadn't had a drink in several hours. They let me go without giving me a ticket (just gave me my license back) but called a tow truck and said I had to pay for the tow home. I was pretty scared so I can't remember clearly but I believe he said he could charge me but wasn't going to (perhaps b/c I was polite and cooperating). My question is, did I get charged with a DUI? Should I consult a lawyer at this time?
Sounds like you are pretty lucky on this one. Be more careful next time.
Can I get a Minnesota License?
I received a DUI in another state more than three years ago. I moved to Minnesota recently and I need to get a new license. All of the criminal charges in the previous state were dropped, however the previous state has laws requiring an alcohol class to get your license reinstated, which I never took before I left. 1. If I were to apply for a new license in Minnesota would that prevent me? 2. If so, what are my options going forward?
Probably not. You'll likely need to satisfy the other state before Minnesota will give you a license. Talk to one of...

How do I clean up a clerical mess over a DUI in 1989?
DUI in GA, 1989. Jumped through all the hoops and left the state in 1990. Have held a valid DL ever since but when I went to renew in August 2012, I find out that GA screwed everything up and suspended my DL in 1990. They claim I owe them 20 hour DUI class (did it) and a drug/alcohol evaluation (did it) plus a reinstatement fee of over $200. Of that, all I did not do was the reinstatement fee because my DL was not suspended by the judge. How could I have held a DL for all these years, gotten tickets, was arrested in 2007 but never did my license come up suspended until now? I need to know how to make this go away. I cannot renew my DL, nor can I get a gov't issued ID until I clean it up. Please advise....
Minnesota Department of Public Safety will respect and enforce whatever status is in Georgia. The problem should be...
Will MN take action against me once they find out I was arrested for another dui, but in another state?
Current resident in Mn. Also have two priors dated back 2007 and 2009. Recently arrested for an OWI (operating while intoxicated) in WI.
Yes, it's very likely that Minnesota will eventually revoke your license if you're convicted of a Wisconsin OWI.
I received a OWI in WI but i live in MN. MN has now revoked my license for 30 days and requested i pay $680 to reinstate my lic
is this not double jeopardy? how can i fight this.
It is not double jeopardy. This is a civil matter rather than criminal. You can contest the revocation but you only...
