While at Penn State an officer entered my apartment and shut off my stereo. Not knowing he was an officer, I asked if I could help him. He turned on me quickly and we pushed each other. In the end, he handcuffed me and I was arrested for assault, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. No one who witnessed it can believe it. However, I have been dismissed from Penn and have to return home to Maryland yet want to complete this program.

DUI and DWI
I have been asked by my attorney to take an alcohol education class in order to show that I'm being proactive before a DUI/DWI. -My question is: What will that do for me? Will the outcome be different from what it would've been if I had not taken the class? I am not considering not taking it (already enrolled) but I'm just wondering what the judge will think of that and what effects it could have on my case. -Will the judge be able to see the results of a PBT? I'm under the impression that it can't be used against me, but I'm wondering if he/she will still be able to see the results? -Will refusing the test at the station automatically hurt me in court? -Since the introduction of Noah's law, has it been harder for attornerys to fight off first offense DUIs? -In what cases are breathalyzers put into vehicles?
