Last night I got an underage, refused breathalyzer, police said I would be arrested and would have to blow there, what do I do?
Got into argument with friend so I left and as soon as I left the police were there. They kept asking me questions, and they checked to see who i was and made me blow in a breathalyzer. At first I refused the breathalyzer, but they told me I could refuse but I would be arrested and would have to use a breathalyzer at the police station anyways. They made me take the breathalyzer several times because I was not "blowing right". When I blew i was twice above the legal limit. So they gave me an underage and said sarcastically I could keep the mouth piece as a "souvenir". What can I do to fight this? This is the second time i would be getting an underage I just got my license back and now they said I lost it for a year, but i need my license to get to and from work! I need help.
Get an attorney. There are good defenses to underage drinking cases even with breathalyers.
How long does it take for the police to send an underage drinking citation?
A few weeks ago I was drinking with my friends. their apartment is a duplex and i was walking to the backside and one of my friends was burning boxes. I had a beer in my hand and about 10 in my bookbag but i wasnt anywhere near drunk. cops came to tell us to put out the fire and wrote down our information. one of the kids(who admitted to living at the house) lied about his name and took off. the cops told my other friend and i if we helped them out and wrote statements they would help us we were completely honest and told them everything. what exactly is going to happen now?

How do I proceed with a DUI charge if I am stationed overseas?
I was recently taken in for a suspected DUI charge, the blood work needs to come back first before I can receive a court date. The blood work, paper work, and charges wont be sent to me until after I return back to my command. I have been told to contact the District Magistrate about this issue. Is there really anything the Magistrate can do before the blood work and charges are written up?
You have to appear in court at least 2 times for a DUI. If you do nothing and do not appear then there will be a bench...

DUI for reason of reasonable control of vehicle.
A couple weeks ago I was arrested for DUI because I was sitting in the driver seat, with the engine running, at a park by the lake. About four hours before my arrest my daughter text me wondering where I was so I sent her a pinpoint location of where I was located through my iPhone. I also told her I had met some people and was going to be there for a while. The people I met gave me some drinks and I took a hit from a joint. I became sick to my stomach and threw up on my pants. I sent my daughter a message stating I wasn't going to be coming home until early in the morning. I told her I was too tired, but I was drunk and high. I went back to my vehicle to sleep off my intoxication when Pennsylvania State trooper's came to my window. My BAC was around .20 and I had a small amount of marijuana in my blood. They charged me with DUI at the highest tier and having a controlled substance in my blood. So two counts. I had no intention of driving. I was going to sleep it off. Will the fact that I communicated with my daughter the facts I had help me? everything is time stamped. My engine was running because I have a severe neurological disorder and I was freezing cold.
Sitting in the drivers seat of a running vehicle will get you charged with DUI. As to the defenses you may have some...
