Tailgated by a police officer and it resulting in their probable cause for dwi arrest; unlawful restraint?
Cars are considered deadly weapons when fleeing (been a violent crime for a few years now).

Thoughts?

Girlfriend was arrested for a dwi in shakopee mn.what now?
She blew a .10 on the breath test on the 19 of september. The paperwork says that her licence will be revoked on the 26th. Can she have this expunged if this is her first offence?

You have raised a lot of questions in your post as is common with DWI cases. Probably the best thing for your GF to do...
