In a three vehicle accident who is at fault, I was the middle car and I ended up being arrested for DUI
I was involved in an accident, it was around 4 pm rainy day and roads were wet. It was a two lane road, hwy 37 in or near a construction area, the car in front of me was moving slow almost stopped, still not real sure why, but as I came up I slam on my breaks and then here comes a huge truck going way too fast and he smashed into my trunk, my body flew forward, head hit steering wheel and knocked me out. I come to with the guy that hit me saying I'm sorry I just couldn't stop. I was just in shock, really cant remember anything clearly it all happened so fast.

I have already went through the interview process for a job in which I now have to wait to take the drug test and get the background check done (which will happen on the 20th).

My court date isn't until the next month (February 13th) and my license has not yet been suspended (I got 46 days until). Will this arrest show up on this background check even though I have not yet been convicted?
Yes it will show up on a background check most likely. How can we answer a question about an unknown employer and...
