So I had about seven drinks total (within a six hour period about.) I got pulled over in my friend's drive way, and they came up asked if I'd been drinking asked for my info. They took my friend immediately into they're car. He only had three drinks, but had violated his probation I am assuming. Cops had me do sobriety tests which I assume I failed. They cuffed me took me straight to the hospital for blood work. I wasn't breathalized, they never asked me to. After the blood work was done and they got all my info, the cop told me, "Well you're not under arrest, you're free to go," took me back to my car and let me go home.. I have no idea what I'm to expect next on this. Are the blood results immediate or a few weeks? Didn't get a ticket or anything either. Sent home with nothing.

My husband was turning onto a slick roadway, and slid into a snow bank. He was not able to get the car out of the snow. There was minimal damage to the vehicle where it hit the snow bank, but no other damage to property or person. The car was well off the road. Another driver came along and offered him a ride home. It was already 2:30 in the morning, so he decided to wait until the following day to call AAA. After being home and in bed, we were awakened by police at @ 3:30 AM who wanted to question him for leaving the scene of an accident.
