Filing citizenship or renewing my permanent resident card with DUI on my record?
I have one DUI on my record that happen 8/11/12 in Los Angeles county and convicted 6/4/2013 with count 02 Charge Section 23152(B) and count 01 Charge Section 23152(A) was dismissed. I complied with the court and DMV prerequisites to complete my case. As an addition on 12/22/16 I submitted a CR181 form order for dismissal, but I haven't received anything back from the court. My green card expired 2/21/2017, and I haven't had no encounter with the law since that incident. I don't know if I should file for citizenship or just renew my green card. I don't want any problems with immigration for them to deny my citizenship app. What would you recommend?

How likely is it that I'll go to jail for a first time dui?
I was pulled over and arrested for DUI last friday. When pulled over officers came to my window and advised that I was swerving and going too slow on the freeway. I tried to explain that my spouse and I felt as though someone was following us, so I slowed down to give the car behind us a reason to pass but that didn't happen. I switched lanes and the officers pulled ME over. They asked me to step out of the vehicle to perform a series of tests. I did every did with no problem. They had me take a breat test and said my alcohol level was too high and that they were taking me in for a dui. My spouse (who was with me) was shot in the face yain september 2016 by a gang affiliated individual. We've since then have not been the same. My spouse asked the officers to drive us home but they wouldn't budge.. I tried explaining my reasons for slowing down & it didn't have any affect on them. After I was booked and taken I stayed incarcerated for a little over 5hrs then released on OR. a pink dmv temporary license was given to me and I was advised to notify the dmv (going today) within 10 days. I have court in long beach on the 27th ofof this month and am seeking an attorney

Should I carry with me documentation of a medical issue that impairs my equilibrium?
I have a muscular disorder that affects my equilibrium and gait. Typically I'm only a passenger in someone else's car or a pedestrian, so I can't see ever having to undergo a Field sobriety test but in Los Angeles County, and in Long Beach, that unlikelihood is like trusting Bernie Madoff with your life savings. Nevertheless, given the ataxia that comes with the disorder, is it advisable to have some "documentation" that I can show them (after receiving their consent to take it out, of course!) to "explain" it? I've never been in trouble with the law. Admittedly I've been stopped by LBPD three times in ten years and always had positive experiences, even being thanked by the officers for being cooperative and understanding of their doing their job. But there's always the exception to make a nightmare a reality.
If you haven't taken any drugs our alcohol and aren't driving why are you concerned?
