Me, my boyfriend, and my friend were driving to my boyfriends moms house. On way there a lady and her husband were in the middle of road stuck with camper and were yelling out window at us, we got into a yelling match and then left. Three hours later after the fact, we were back home drinking and the police came and took us in and said we were both getting dui's and we weren't even behind the wheel of any vehicles, we were sitting around my kitchen table.
