On 9 August I left Potosi and headed north towards Prairie. I had 3 pints in 3 hrs while in town (I am 5'3", 120 lbs). I pulled off onto a gravel road to check my GPS when an officer pulled up, said I was "parked oddly", and had me step out of the car. After a field test in bare feet on a gravel road I was placed under arrest and taken to Lancaster. At the station I blew a .17. They took all my info, set a court date of 30 Sept., and let me call a friend to pick me up. I know I screwed up and will take the penalty. But since I reside in Iowa what does the Wisconsin conviction mean? Will I lose my Iowa license/have to get an IID installed? Will I have to pay Iowa first offense fines even though I paid those in Wisconsin? Thanks for all advice.
