Will I have a case against my alleged DUi
My car "charger" was parked by my house out of fuel from earlier in the day because my sister was driving it. After getting home from a local small town bar, my sisters ex called me in for "erratic" driving my girlfriends car "Pontiac." staying he was right behind me, however was still at said bar. After arriving home, I drank heavily, and wanted a ciggerette tired of standing I walked to my car "charger" and smoked then fell asleep "keys in center console" two sheriffs deputy's came to my door ordered me out, they told me I had been drinking and driving, after telling them my story they insisted I was, asked for a field test, and breathilizer. I kept asking why and asking what I did wrong was never once said no to either. they continued demanding that I was driving and drinking because I was so "reported" to be all over the road from a caller "sisters ex". I kept my words to myself and refused to say anything else after I knew the topic was going no where. They read my my rights 30mins later at the county jail. Worth noting: I use to work at said sheriffs office in the jail, left on bad terms. One of the officers who detained me didn't see eye to eye with me. Please help! TY

How long before they charge you with a DUI?
I was in a single car accident a week ago under the influence of alcohol. I live in Iowa and was airlifted from the scene. The police know I'm currently home but have not charged me with a DUI yet. Is this normal...or possibly did they over look that I was under the influence. The hospital took alcohol blood test?????

Out of state Marijuana DUI
I am from Minnesota and got a DUI for marijuana in Iowa when I was pulled over for a tail light. I also got charged with paraphernalia. I haven't heard anything yet and it has been 2 months.

Yes. There are numerous possible outcomes. I'd be concerned that you haven't heard anything for 2 months. You might...

Will I get in trouble also?
I was struck by someone pulling out of apartment parking lot onto road. The driver took off. I followed the driver around the block and got their license plate number. By this time I was on the phone with 911. They returned to the apartment parking lot and ran inside, got a few people to come and get kids from the car that were not strapped in properly. The police work seemed very lazy. Said they were only going to charge them with failure to yield for left hand turn. Being 23 weeks pregnant, I went to hospital for observation. Do I push for a hit and run and child endangerment charge? Will I get in trouble for pursing after them?
Push for hit and run? Sure report it to the police........................................
Is there any leeway on the BAC reading (.172) for a deferred judgment 1st offense?
I was arrested for 1st offense DUI. Pulled over for speeding by a state trooper in training. I was surprised to be pulled over because I wasn't going more than 5-6 miles over the limit. I was immediately asked to exit the vehicle and sit in the troopers car. I complied because I figured I had no choice. She asked me how fast I was going, I didn't know, but it wasn't much over the limit, was I speeding? What was my speed? She wouldn't tell me... I was frustrated and asked again why I was pulled over. She said 'greater than 60.' (55 mph road). She said she smells alcohol. I had two drinks earlier in the day at lunch 4-5 hours prior. My wife and I stoppped at a friends who's family runs a winery. I had 3 small glasses of wine that was being processed to try it out. I was okay to drive so we left. I did sobriety tests in the dark, along the gravel shoulder with cars passing. I voiced my frustration with the uneven surface, flashing lights, and gravel. To my shock by the time we returned to the station more than an hour and a half later I blew a .17 and was in jail until 10 the next morning. Is there any chance for a deffered? Clean record. I work in finance. No charges ever.
