Can I get my charged with dwi while walking
I was stopped walking for meeting the description of someone who left the scene of an accident. My car was nowhere to be found they asked me to blow I blew 0.00. I refused a drug test after admitting to being on percocet which I'm prescribed have been for years. I was arrested for felony leaving the scene of accident. Supposidly they had a witness pull up and identify me as the driver, which the alleged accident happened at night on a dark highway and I have dark tinted windows. They held me for 24 hours (24hr hold) and released me me without charges but gave me a ticket for dwi with no court date and county has no record of ticket. Can I be charged for accident or dwi and can they suspend my license for refusing drug test. I think if they had a witness they would have charged me?

In response to advice that was given to prior question about removing dwi from statute
EXPUNGEMENT OF CONVICTION FROM RECORDS 577.054 RSMo. : EXPUNGEMENT: One of the most overlooked Statutes dealing with DWI offenses in Missouri Law, is also one of the most important. It is the Missouri Statute dealing with expungement of DWI/ BAC convictions from a person's record. The Statute is limited in use, but where available, it will not only remove (expunge) the conviction from a person's criminal record, but it will also remove it from the person's driving record. The expungement of a conviction can make a huge difference regarding employment, insurance, etc. It can also make a big difference if a future conviction should ever occur. The reader should note that it will be too late to seek expungement of a prior conviction once a second offense is charged. The Statute states, "After a period of not less than ten years, and individual who has pleaded guilty or has been convicted for a first offense alcohol related driving offense which is a misdemeanor or a county or city ordinance violation and which is not a conviction for driving a commercial motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and who since such date has not been convicted of any other alcohol related driving offense may apply to the court in which he pled guilty or was sentenced for an order to expunge from all official records all recordations of his arrest, plea, trial or conviction. If the court determines after hearing that that such person has not been convicted of any alcohol related driving offense in the ten years prior to the date of the application for expungement, and has no other alcohol related enforcement contacts as defined in section 302.525 RSMo., during that ten year period, the court shall enter an order of expungement. The effect of such order shall be to restore such person to the status he occupied prior to such arrest, plea or conviction and as if such event had never taken place.
What exactly is your question? Above.. this reads as an advertisement, not actual statute, so what's the point?
Can you have a dwi and a careless an dimprudent driving ticket at the same time?
Is it possible to have 2 tickets in missouri one Dwi and the other Careless and imprudent driving?
Yes. The two charges are for different conduct. A person can be driving perfectly safely and be convicted of DUI...
