Will I be charged for a DUI?
My friend had a family emergency and had to get home earlier than expected and we had a few drinks at the bar. When we got to his house the police were already there and my friend went inside with them. After the situation concluded the police came out and questioned me. They asked if I was drinking I said yes and they did a breathalyzer test on me. I blew over but they did not arrest me, ask for my license, or even my name. They said this was a warning and said you should spend the night here. With all that being said, is there a chance of me being charged?
No one can say for certain if you will be charged. That is up to the prosecutor. However, given the circumstances that...
Will I get a Dui or will I be charged with anything?

Can "precedent " be used in a preliminary hearing for a DWI
I found a case from an appellate court for an improper left turn. The judge ruled the law doesn't state which lane to go into when making a left turn in an intersection with more than one lane. I was pulled over for an improper left turn at an intersection which led to a DWI arrest where I was never read the consent law and didn't blow. Can "precedent from the appellate court "be used in the preliminary hearing since there was no probable cause for me being pulled over .
The Lake Superior Courts would consider it, but only at a hearing specifically set to determine probable cause...
