When you are arrested are you supposed to know the charge or can they charge you at the jail later?
I had an officer pull up on me while in a parking lot accused me of running a stop sign but said I stopped at the intersection. I didn't know if that was possible. Then he asked for license and insurance before I could arrested resisting

Drinking in Public 5-71-212:
Pled not-guilty, have trial date in July 2015.
Enough discrepancies to get dropped?
I was pulled over 1 block from my home. Officer asked if I had been drinking & I admitted I had earlier at a bar. He did field sobriety, I passed, did a Breathalyzer, registered .026. Gave me a ticket for Drinking in Public 5-71-212 is what is marked on ticket. My boyfriend pulled up behind us (officer car blocked the road). Same thing, bf blew .06, same ticket. Officer had bf drive the vehicle I was in to our driveway, then walk back and drive his truck to our driveway and made me walk to our home. (both vehicles registered in bf name so he was to drive them). Neither of us were drinking in public, neither went to jail, we were NOT released to a "sober" person's custody since we were both given tickets. Both tickets also read that we were both driving the same vehicle! Can we fight it?

My record is completely clean other than this one incident. Also, if I have a lay over in another country but am staying in the airport, will I have a problem then? My lay over may be in Dubai.
Realistically your case would still be pending in three months. DWI cases routinely take much longer than that. Your...
