If someone has been charged with drugs but still hasn't went to court yet how long can they sit in jail ?

Are there are any grounds for false arrest or other complaints/charges/action?
At my 32 year old son's first court hearing this morning for DUI, prosecutor told judge they would not proceed because blood alcohol level was not over limit. Charges apparently dropped. This, after $6500.00 for attorney (no kick there). Wondering if there are grounds for action (if so, what?) against state or GSP Officer who made original stop? FST was administered, my son took a breathlyzer test. Officer would not divulge results. handcuffed my son (never arrested or charged with anything ever before), took him to hospital to have blood drawn. Would not and has not released results. Seems like all of this, especially $6500.00 expense could have been avoided except for bellicose attitude of GSP officer. Thank you.

Do I need a lawyer to attend may first court date?
I was arrested for DUI on August 8th. I've researched lawyers and I'm saving up to afford one. My first court date was today (9-17) where upon appearing in front of the judge I asked for an extension to afford a lawyer who could help me decide what I should plea and the judge was very unaccommodating and gave me one week. I was issued a summons that reads: "It is hereby commanded that laying all other business aside you shall be at and appear before the court on Tuesday 9-24th to answer the charges indicated above. You are further directed to bring with you any and all witnesses or evidence which you desire to produce in trial of your case. Herein fail not under penalty of law." I was also issued an identically worded summons for the date 10-29.
Feel free to give my office a call tomorrow and we can discuss your options.
