I also received one a month later that I pled guilty to to get out of jail. Is the first still considered a DUI 1 and none of my medication bottles state any type of warning regarding operation of motor vehicles until you now how it affects you and I was prescribed to take them 2 x 's per day.

Call a local attorney. Breath tests are always offered. Did he write you for a refusal? You need a lawyer in your area.

Duplicate question and answer. See next question.
DUI, open container, broken hand, no blood urinalysis or breathalyzer done. Refused it
Driving w/ open container, passed out at stop sign due to a number of things. Officer told my brother if he comes get me and my car it won't classifed as DUI. However another officer comes on scene gives me sobriety test, refused breathalyzer cuz I was already pissed that I'm getting arrested after my brother drove for no reason to come get me. There was no blood drawn nor urine obtained. There is just probable cause b/c of bottle on passenger floor. I had a caste on my right hand which meant I could not reach it. The dismissed the open container and implied consent. Still hit me with a DUI, suspended my L's then gave me all these fee's and gave me a probation alcohol class. I need advice if this is right and how can I fight it. What steps before my window of opportunity is gone.
