Dui arrest?
I was pulled over a night after drinking with some friends which I shouldn't had done. I was a minor at that point. I got pulled over and the officer asked me if I was drinking. They did some test afterward and issue me a citation ticket and a form that says I was drinking under age. They then asked me if someone was nearby to pick me up since I couldn't drive, and I said yes. Then when the person arrive, I was free to go. Does this count as a arrest and will it show in my record? I Wasn't taken down to the station and they didn't call my parents, but will this still count as a arrest? Another thing is that a mail was send after a few days to my house from the CHP saying that I was arrested. But I wasn't taken to custody and no picture or finger were taken. does still count as an arrest?
Is CHP California Highway Patrol? Do you have a court date?

I recently got a 2nd DUI on 7/18/2015. 1st DUI in 2008. What are the possibilities of getting it dismissed?
I got one DUI in 2008 in which I obtain a lawyer and the case was reduced to wet reckless. I completed all the requirements. I recently got a 2nd DUI on 7/18/2015 and I was wondering what are the possibilities of getting it dismissed. I was stopped for running a red light. My BAC was .11 at the scene (11:30pm) and .09 at the statio maybe 1 hour later or so. I hadn't eaten anything since approx. 7:30am and drank a small amount of alcohol around 10:30pm. I didn't take a blood test. I was stopped under a freeway, alot of traffic passing by, noise, and I was standing in water and on a slightly slanted street while doing the sobriety test.
In order to get this case dismissed, your only chances are a Not Guilty Verdict through a trial. Get a good DUI Trial...
