I was arrested for public intoxication at Hangover Fest. I wasn't drunk. I was having a panic attack. What should I do?
I was at hangover fest with a friend. He got very drunk and was running around and the police arrested him.He had my phone and ID at the time and I went up to the police to try and get my stuff back from him. I have bad panic attacks and when they wouldn't let me get my stuff I panicked. I couldn't breath and I collapsed on the ground. They were asking me if I was drunk, telling me I could either go to jail or the hospital but I couldn't talk, couldn't do anything. They handcuffed and arrested me, no Breathalyzer. At the jail they did an EKG and told me my heart rate was elevated. They kept me overnight, fined me 500 dollars, gave me a Breathalyzer in the morning an d sent me home. Should I fight this? what are my chances? I had two beers earlier at the festival but I was not drunk
The only thing you can do.. fight the case. Call a local criminal defense attorney for a free consultation
When does a dui probation order expire if I have completed all of the conditions. Probation told me they "closed" the file
upon completion of all of the terms. Does it go into effect the date the order was signed or the date of my 1st probation visit?

What can I do to get a recent pedestrian under influence citation taken off my record?
I am 17 and was walking down w beach blvd at night after drinking a couple beers. I was walking because I didn't want to get in the car with someone I assumed to be drinking. I was stopped by a police officer and admitted to having a couple of beers. I was brought to the police station and received a ticket for pedestrian under influence. This is the only ticket/citation I have ever received. The Statute number is 32-5a-221 What can I do to get this off of my record? Will this hurt future employments? Will I be eligible for a diversion program or be able to get this expunged? Would it be smart to hire an attorney and fight this or should I just pay the fine? Thanks.

Is a 32-5A-221 considered a DUI?
The citation also says under described "Pedestrian Under Influence." It was a drinking charge, would this be the same thing as public intoxication?
Probably, show your attorney the citation or criminal complaint. Being drunk in public is not enough for conviction in...
If i was charged with a DUI in Indiana but not convicted, can i obtain a driver's license where i live in Alabama?
This was my first offense, so they put me on a DADS program for one year. As long as I'm enrolled and participating in this program for a full year i will not be convicted of the DUI. I am enrolled and participating in the program but i live in Alabama. (they allowed me to do this) So i heard if I'm not convicted then the suspension doesn't go into the national data base but stays in Indiana. Is this true?
Sounds plausible. Have you tried to get a license in Alabama? Did Indiana ever suspend your license?
Arrested for DUI and was told to go to Veterans Court. Is this the same as district/circuit court?
My husband was arrested for DUI in Foley, Baldwin County, by a Sheriff. When I bonded him out he had paperwork telling him to go to Veterans Court. I can't find anything about it online. What can he expect there? Do they follow the same procedures as district court?
