Can you be charged with DUI if your not driving?

I blew the breath test three times and came back negative, then was taken to a hospital and had blood taken. now I received a notice in the mail stating I'm being charged with DUI but never saw a judge ?

Will I be charged?
I was pulled over by state police for swerving which i don't think i was. I refused the field sobriety tests and portable breathalyzer. I was not slurring or swaying or anything on camera and he only said he smelled alcohol and l was arrested only because refusal. In the back of the cop car he was asking to search vehicle and if i would still take the tests and i declined and he had the car towed. I was never taken to barracks to take the other breathalyzer. The trooper just drove me to my fathers house afterwards. Will I still be charged or was he cutting me a break (asking because i knew trooper through mutual friends) ? And does the refusal still count if it was the portable one? It's been 7 days since the incident and still haven't heard anything. My attorney was interested when he asked me if i was taken to barracks or not and told me just to wait and see if they do anything.

Can you help me ensure that I am doing my time in Lackawanna county for this Clinton county DUI and treatment court in LW cty?
I'm seeking some answers as to a criminal law (4th DUI) issue in Clinton county, PA, when I'm a resident of Lackawanna county, PA. I am seeking advice and possible representation as to whether I could be accepted into treatment court in Lackawanna county, do the 60-90 days incarceration period that the DA is going to recommend, then 18 months of treatment court (in Lackawanna county) or 24 months of treatment court (in Clinton) with house arrest for 1 year after incarceration? How would it be determined that I am transferred to Lackawanna county treatment court rather than Clinton county (b/c my wife and infant son are both in Lackawanna and so am I, I would prefer to stay here rather than Clinton county)? What are the procedures and what can I expect? I am told I am to have an arraignment date (and sentencing date) on February 22nd, 2016 in Clinton county and I need to know if someone knows the law and can tell me whether I can expect the above scenario in Lackawanna county and if you, as my potential attorney, can assist in making this happen? Thank you.

I've been charged with a suspicion of dui and just wondering if there is any loophole because my court date is for 2014 and this just happened two weeks ago so they messed up the date
Not for that reason. However, your case may have other issues that an experienced dui attorney can discover.
