Taken to station because police wanted to give me a DUI. Blew 000 and charged with careless driving. Was I technically arrested?
The other night, I was pulled over driving some friends home from a party. The cop said he smelled alcohol from the car, and I explained it was probably coming from my friends being that they were at a college party. He asked me to blow a field breathalyzer, which I refused. I took the field sobriety test and was told I failed. They put me in handcuffs and took me to the station. After blowing a 0.00, they put me in a jail cell, took my fingerprints, a mugshot, and gave me a careless driving ticket. I have a few questions. 1, was I arrested? They took me to the station believing I was going to get a DUI but since I was sober was I arrested for careless driving or not arrested at all? 2. I took an online driving course and got the ticket expunged, will my arrest record still be on file for federal agencies? Thank you
