I had a car accident exactly a month ago am worried I am going to charged with an OUI? I had two drinks and was driving home. I briefly went in the other lane while a car (cop) was coming and I overcorrected and crashed into a tree. I was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. A cop came to the hospital and took my blood for an alcohol test. He said he would contact me in a week about the results. It has been over a month and am wondering if I should still be worried about getting an OUI. How long do the cops have to charge me with a DUI?

I was caught drinking underage the other night at a college. It was my first offence of any kind and my first time even having alcohol.

My friend was with me and mentioned he wouldn't be able to become a cop now. The officer said that is not true and that this wont show up on job applications or anything. I am just curious to know how I should handle this and where it may show up in the future. Thank you.

If one cop said you are all set have a good night.Can the second cop charge me after I was cleared?
Absolutely; however, you can always call the first officer as a witness to challenge the allegations against you.
If my license was revoked for one year in VA for a DUI and I never had it reinstated in VA but the year has come and gone, am I able to apply for a license in Maine. Do I need to reinstate it in VA if I am now a Maine resident?
Maine will not issue you a driver's license as long as you remain under suspension in VA. Until you do what it takes...
