What to say when accused of a dui
I was driving home at night after having a couple beers and a deer ran out in front of my car. I had to swerve and my car became stuck in a ditch. I tried to push my car out but couldn't so someone driving by offered me a ride and I went home planning to get the car out the next morning. The car was towed by police overnight after someone called and said someone crashed their car and they saw he driver staggering. Now I have to call the cop who towed my car.

"DWI and DWI with .08% or more BAC ...." I am curious to what that means?

Can my probation officer force me to take drug classes if clean?
My probation officer told me to get evaluated and take a drug test. I did and tested negative. I am 4 months clean from marijuana use and he is now telling me that I have to start a drug treatment by next week or I'm going to jail.
