How can i be charged with dwi while sitting in the passenger seat of a running parked car, in parking spot, in a parking lot?
During a domstic incident i tried to call 911 for help. The phone was taken away from me, so i fled. Went to police station, down the road, no one was there. I unlocked the car, got it the passenger seat and locked myself in for safety. I began beeping the horn to get someone's attention to have them call for help. At outside temperatures of -3°, i reached over started the car and turned the heat to high. Eventually someone did call the police because of the horn, but when they showed up they took me to the nys trooper barricks ( i THOUGHT to help me and to arrest my bf for abuse). 3hrs later they told me i was being charged with dwi!!!!?!?!?!?! I was shocked and horrified, scared and in pain. I asked for a lawyer, they said i didn't want 1 because then i couldn't leave that i would have to go to jail instead and they continued. I was not given any field tests, i was not putting myself or anyone else in harm. I was not driving. I was not in the drivers seat. The headlights were not on. The car was in park. The car was not on or along side a road. I was not pulled over. There is no way any one witnessed me driving because i wasn't. ?????
How did the car get there? This may be a circumstantial case.

The charges in 2000 were CWOF'd and the charges in CT are sealed following a diversionary program. Will these charges automatically disqualify me for a CDL even though they are "technically" not guilty
We could look that up for you but don't know offhand
Can an out of state DUI license suspension affect your license in your home state?
I got a DUI in Vermont and got my license suspended in Vermont. I live in New York and was just wondering if the suspension would carry over into my NY license. I am taking the appropriate steps in Vermont to regain my license and so far nothing has happened in NY, but I didn't know if anything would happen by the time I get my privileges back in VT.
Yes. Most states are part of a driver's license compact, and if you are revoked in one state the information may be...
