I recently got a drunk in public on Wednesday August 17th. Since the DUI was a wet reckless charge and not a DUI charge my question is Do i have to do any jail time for this drunk in Public since i was off of probation previously.

If a Police report shows an arrest as being for a Felony DUI (vc 23153), but the charges were filed in Court as a Misdeameanor DUI (vc 23152) first offense, what information would actually show on a Live Scan report? Would the Felony part still be listed,even though it wasn't filed that way?

2am pulled over for not using turn signal at stop sign in residential area, no other cars around except cop car behind me. I blew .08 bac. Officer said I could be arrested & spend hours at lockup being booked, posting bail, doing blood test, or I could be released now to parents custody. My brother who had a few drinks was in the passenger seat & yelled out the window for me to request a blood or urine test. He said they don't want to process all the paperwork. Officer told him urine test is no longer offered, call parents & be quiet. They arrested him for public intoxiation because he was "interferring" with their work. Officer told me I'm very cooperative, passed all field tests & will probably get charged with a wet reckless. He let me go home w/parents. I'm 27. No prior offense
You cannot be charged with "wet reckless." That is a charge the prosecution can reduce a DUI to in plea negotiations,...
I was arrested in January for a DUI. It was reduced to a wet and wreckless. Our city 9 months later sent me a letter stating that the city is seeking reimbursement for costs associated with the investigation. The letter stated the fee was established by board of supervisors and adopted by city council. Am I obligated to pay? I left message at phone number they never returned call and received 2nd letter. I am unemployed and already strained by court cost. Will I get in trouble for not paying??
Certain government codes may make it allowable but it's usually in conjunction with a DUI where an accident was...
I came to in a parking lot adjacent to a gas station. I had been on my way to pay rent to my landlord. I left at 10:30pm and awoke at 11:15 to an EMT at my window with no recollection of how I had gotten there. I told the EMT that I felt confused and was worried I had a seizure. After declining a ride to the hospital (because it costs $1000 for a 2 minute ride), I was approached by police. They asked me to step out of the car and immediate went into field sobriety tests. I told them I had neurological problems and refused to take them. They arrested me and I asked to be taken to hospital. After about two hours they said they had obtained a warrant for a blood draw. I consented then (unknown results as of now). released from the ER and booked at 2:19am. Where do I go from here?
I'm going to change your practice are to DUI in the hopes you get some attorneys in your area to respond to your...
