Can I get jail time for blowing .05 in my interlock and I wasn't drinking?
I used mouthwash and sprayed body mist n hairspray on my hair before I blew.

Can I be charged with DWI if I wasn't driving and the keys weren't in the ignition?
Long story short. I was sitting behind the wheel but my girlfriend had taken the keys to insure that I wouldn't start driving. I had drank more than my limit and we both knew it wasn't safe or advisable for me to continue driving so we had parked at a Safeway parking lot. We had been parked for an hour when a patrolman approached us and asked us about a stranger that had walked up to us earlier. An argument ensued and he said I would need to take a DWI test. I refused because when he walked up, I wasn't driving and the keys weren't in the ignition. I spent the night in jail. Now I am waiting to go to court for aggravated DWI. Have an appointment to talk to an attorney soon.
Yes! You can be charged for either past or future driving (the intent to drive while intoxicated). The officer needs a...

How do I clear all this up and get my license for the 1st time in my life!
I used to live in Wisconsin in 2005, got a dui. I am now a resident of New mexico as of 2009. The conviction says I have to take alcohol assesment and complete a class. Wisconsin wants a referal from New Mexico saying I need alcohol treatment, and proof of class completion. I can't get referral because since, I don't have my license and haven't been pulled over for anything in New Mexico and docs say I have no drug or alcohol problems therfore, they cannot give me any referrals it would be immoral. Please help me get my license. I have never had it.
If you can't get the referral, repeat the class.
