DUI even though i wasn't intoxicated.
So a few weeks ago, I got into an accident by hitting a tree. Air bags did deploy. Police came and did a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer. I have severe flat feet, so i did stumble a bit but bever fail and still passed everything, and even my breathalyzer blew a 0.0. He still arrested me, and now i'm awaiting court. i was not drinking or smoking weed or doig any kind of drugs that night or the last few nights so what happens now. What happens if they find trace of THC from a few weeks ago, (wasn't weed, it was a vape juice which contained a bit, took a small hit didnt get high)

Should I get an attorney before I turn my self in for blowing dirty at second DUI class in 2005? Warrant is still active
I am willing to do the jail time. Already paid all my ct fines, never got my license back, I drive others cars, so would it matter if I turn myself in and just accept whatever penalties without representation?
not a very good idea the penalties can be extreme on a probation violation and they can usually be well negotiated by...
Wrongfully arrested and charged for DUI. Will i need an attorney?
I was wrongfully arrested and charged for dui, i had too much to drink so my friend was my designated driver. when we got out of the bar and to my car, person who parked in front of me accuse us of hitting his car and called the police. Cops came and question us and gave me the breath test, of course i was drunk but i wasnt driving. Police made their mind that i was the driver and arrested me. From the damages of both our vehicles, it seems someone had side swiped both our cars while we parked. To even accuse me of doing that is ridiculous sense we both parked on the left side on a one way street and out damages is on the right side. They have taken my license. This is my first time being charged with anything. Im seeking legal advice on what to do. My friend is my witness.

I was charged with DUI. Cops followed me from the bar. They were waiting outside the bar with lights off and followed me.
I saw them, stopped the car and walked back to the bar. On my way back they stopped me and after the tests arrested me. On their report they gave different story that they patrolled the area and pulled over when I parked in a driveway and saw me drunk in a car. They can follow drunk guy walking drunk & driving. But they claim different facts. It tells me that what they did was illegal. Please advice on the legality of what they did and what is the procedure to challange probable cause? It was 2 am and I now of no witnesses but the same happened to many other people at the same bar. How can I use that info?
