Why did was the DA not ready to press charges? (DUI)
I got in a minor accident in a parking lot and when the police showed up they gave me a sobriety check. Which I did well, but admitted that I had a Prozac in my pocket that didn't belong to me. They searched my vehicle, found nothing. But took me in on a DUI because they said my eyes looked funny and didn't know what the pill was. I had been in an accident with a semi truck less than two months prior and had to have brain surgery and a metal plate put in my head. Because of my TBI I had been depressed which is why I was taking a friends Prozac. There might have been traces of marijuana and possibly cocaine but that would've been from almost a month prior to my arrest. When I showed up to court I was told the DA wasn't ready to press charges. Is that good, bad, or irrelevant?

My chance on getting DUI dismissed
I went out with friends and drank too much. They dropped me off at my car that was in a parking lot of a Home Depot. I called my best friend and asked her to come get me; she lives about 40 minutes away. I fell asleep and woke up to a fireman knocking on my window. The police came and He explained someone saw me and thought I was hurt and that's why they came. He asked me to do a breathlyser and I told them I would do a blood test. Anyways, I was booked for a DUI, they left my car in the parking lot. Anyway of getting it dismissed since I wasn't driving? I did have a DUI when I was 21, years ago.
