Can I get charged with DUI after being sent home?
I was involved in a crash where the other car fled the scene. At the time I was sober, late and chose not to call the cops since I believed this situation could be solved with my insurance company. At a later time, on the same day and after drinking, I needed road assistance since the car broke down. In order to get towed, they instructed me to get a police report, so I called the cops. The cops at the time were not able to produce a police report, I would have to contact the state police since the accident happened at another location. The county police did a breathalyzer test that pointed way above limit. The cop sent me home and told the road assistance staff to proceed with the tow, however, he instructed the towing company to only release the vehicle after I would be able to produce a police report. I'm about to get this done however I'm afraid that after/at the time I get the report done they will charge me with the DUI.

What can happen to my husband, he had a prior OWI almost 4 years and no run ins with the cops after that but was pulled over?
My husband has a prior OWI I’m his record. He was almost at the 4 year mark of no run ins with the law. Doing great, no drinking, no driving and just focused on work and family. A week ago he was driving our truck trying to get to the hospital when he was pulled over, they let him go but he has court December 4th. I’m worried sick that they will make him serve time. I’m just wondering what are the possibilities of what the judge can do under these circumstances. He is the only one providing for us right now since I’m a stay at home mom because we can’t afford child care. We live in Barry County in Michigan But he was pulled over in Caledonia Michigan, Kent County.

Is it possible to transfer from one countie's Sobriety Court to another?
A friend of mine is scheduled to Graduate from Sobriety Court Oct 10th. He was pulled over on a restricted license driving a vehicle without a Blow n Go. No alcohol involved. Because he was within weeks of Graduation he had made arrangements to live in another county. His arrangements with his current landlord were to be out by Oct 31st. His landlord has since that agreement sold this house. The new owners have agreed to him living there until Oct 31st. He also quit his job in the county he currently resides in and accepted a job with another company. His new employer has agreed to keep him employed if he can be transferred to a different county. They have agreed to provide transportation to and from work daily. The transfer would be from Ottawa County to Kent County. Thanks in advanced for your advice and opinions.
You should ask the particular sobriety court. There may be difficulties. Grant funded sobriety courts have a specific...
