I was arrested for DUI/failure to maintain lane. What are my next steps?
After work on one day in Feb., I had two drinks at a restaurant. When I was headed home, my back tire blew out. I couldn't control my car. According to witnesses, the tire started smoking and blew right of underneath the car. We were on a bridge. I flipped the car. A witness helped me out. The police came. I had the sobriety/breathalyzer test. He arrested me but didn't send me to jail. Told me to say that I had an injury in order to avoid jail time. I did. They took my blood at the hospital. He took my license and told me court was on May 11 for DUI and Failure to Maintain Lane. However, when all my papers were given to me at discharge, the tickets weren't there. It is now April, I have my license- my court date is not in the system at the courthouse. What's my next move?

Attorneys are seeking a lessor conviction that will allow him to complete his career and avoid discharge, assuming a reduction to Wet/Reckless will still be considered a DUI conviction.
