I had driven for about 13 hours to get to Salem Virginia for a shut down job. I decided to have a few drinks while I sat in my vehicle in the hotel parking lot so I could smoke since the hotel is 100% smoke free. It was cold that night so I had the vehicle running using the heater and I feel asleep. The police came through the parking lot and woke me up and saw the empty beers and asked me to submit to a field sobriety test which I refused because I thought I was on private property and had permission to drink in the parking lot from the hotel management. So I was arrested and charged with DWI.
Stay off the internet and stop posting evidence against yourself.

How do I get a Virginia license after getting a DUI in Georgia?
I got a DUI, first offense, in Georgia, about 2-3 years ago. I have to take a weekend DUI class/online class of about 30 hours to have it reinstated. I have recently moved to Virginia and want to know what I need to do to get a valid Virginia license. Do I just need to take the class and go to DMV here or is there something I need do in Georgia?
I got my first dwi in 2000 and second one in 2007. After the second one I realized that I need to make amends in my life and since then stopped drinking. I also had my first kid in 2008 and presently I have 3 kids. I wanted to set a good example for my kids and be there for them all the time, so I had no option than to quit drinking and lead a good life style.
In 2007, I applied for citizenship, went through all the steps and at the interview day, the interviewer told me a decision cannot be made at that time, so I will hear from them soon. My case was approved but I was never notified. Three months later I went to their office to inquire and I was told my case has been approved but the finger printing has expired. Which means I had to go in for a new finger printing. Unfortunately, whiles waiting for the fingerprinting letter I got my second dwi, and based on that I was denied.
Since my second dwi in 2007, I have not even had a traffic ticket and wants to keep maintaining such a good life style as an example for my kids.
Is it a good time to apply personally, or do I need and immigration lawyer in this regard. Thanks.
If you remained sober for the last 10 years as you explain here, then go ahead and apply for citizenship.
Can I get a restricted license after a felony DWI?
In 2014 I was involved in a DWI. Another car crossed over the center line, I swerved to avoid it, and injured a pedestrian. There was alcohol in my system. This was my first offense - both traffic and criminal.
My lawyer had me plead guilty. I lost my license for 4 years, have been on probabtion for two (with zero issues), paid off all court fines as well as a substantial restitution to the victim.
The accident occurred in NC but by the court date I had moved to VA. I have no family in the area and no close friends in town. My boyfriend, the reason I moved to VA, is slated to deploy in the next year. Is there a way I can petition for a restricted or hardship license so that I can maintain the house, go to doctor's appointments, care for my animals, etc. while he is out of the country? Better yet, is there any way I could potentially get an actual license back before the originally assigned 4 years is over?
You are going to be in quite a dilemma here. First, you have to go to NC to to get your license reinstated. Then you...
Charged with a DUI and refusal after not saying anything because I was arrested for reckless driving and read my Miranda
When I was pulled over for trying to avoid an accident in front of me and behind me. I swerved out the way almost getting hit by another car behind me. I was stopped and questioned why I was stopped numerous times as I was grabbing my license and registration. I was pulled out the car, slammed against my car and placed under arrest for reckless driving and read my rights after I had asked to speak with the officer's supervisor. The officer asked me have I had anything to drink to night and I said water damn drinks. He asked me to take a soberity test, I said nothing and then I would like to speak to your supervisor. Then he said I refused and read me a paper about refusing. Was locked up for a week before arraignment. Bond out a few days later
It sounds like it is time to lawyer up and plan your defense. I am certain the officer well tell a different story and...
