I have a pending DUI charge in GA/Fulton County. I recently ran a background check on myself and found no record of my charges.

He said I couldn't drive my car because of a damage. He ask do I want him to call a tow truck. I told him I didn't have money on me for a tow truck. So he said he can call the police for me to see how best they can help me. Police arrive close to 3:00am. I saw the gentleman explaining something to the police from my rearview mirror.
