I was charged with a DUI. Will my drivers license be revoked if I was not arrested?
I am 18 and was charged with a DUI and a minor. I was not pulled over. My car died in the middle of an intersection and a cop saw and came to help. He had asked if I had anything to drink, I was honest and said yes. I agreed to take a breathalyzer and I blew a .04. On my ticket it does not say what my blood alcohol content was though. Is there a reason why it does not say what my BAC was?
With a .04 test result, chances are that you were charged with Underage Drinking and Driving, not DUI. It's a...
Will the police do anything if I call about a habitually drunk driver?
My father-in-law (who is a prick and an alcoholic) has a problem with driving drunk. He's going to kill someone one of these days. I have pulled out vodka containers 1/4 full out of his Tahoe before after he just got home from work. He has smashed his SUV into the house and damaged both. He called the police on himself one time to go to detox and registered a .34 on a breathalizer. Problem is, he continues this habit of drinking and driving. Even a liquor store employee told him once "you shouldn't be driving when you're drunk". Question is, if I notify the local police (just up the road) about this, will they keep an eye on his vehicle and pull him over for any sort of infraction just to deter the behavior? Will they even do anything?
If you call in and provide your identity and specific information about a particular incident in progress then my guess...
Going to court for dwi on atv - will i lose my car driving priv's also?
I was stopped on an ATV and receivied a violation for DUI. My implied consent urine resulted in .11. I have a careless driving - alcohol related - on my record from over 12 years ago. Since this dui was on an ATV am i facing losing my driving rights to a car also? there is conflicting information on-line.
My understanding is that your driver's license WILL be revoked if you are convicted of the DWI offense on the ATV,...

Will it go on my permanent record and can/ will I be able to fight it?
I'm 18, this weekend I was camping and we got a noise citation, along with that there was alcohol on the camp site and we got another citation for that. I was not drinking, and because others were I was required to take a breathalyzer which i blew a 0 (obviously) so will this citation given to me by a camp ranger go on my record and can I fight it in court seeing as though the camp site wasn't under my name and I wasn't drinking?
You are permitted to fight any allegation against you whether it is an infraction or a criminal ticket. You should...
Is there any steps I need to be taking after just receiving a citation for dwi?
I've asked friends who have have dwi's and they find it odd I only received a citation. My citation says first offense 4th degree dwi. I swear the arresting officer said a prosecutor would call me. I haven't gotten anything in the mail regarding a court date. No urine or blood sample was taken, just a breathalyzer. I have a friend in a similar situation and she's waited months and no word. Difference is she blew a .08 and I blew a .15. The police officer did inform me that the law has changed to .15 or below now being a petty misdemeanor. I'm not sure if that requires a court date. I've called to see if I'm on the list for court and nothing. I'm really not sure what to do now. I got an open bottle charge at the time of incident so I figured a court appearance would be set. Ramsey County.
I would highly recommend you use the telephone and speak to an experienced DUI attorney in Ramsey County, MN. Use the...
Will i be stuck with whiskey plates on both trucks?
My ex who I am on the title to a F15o got his second DWI (first was in 2010) last night. I dont want whiskey plates on my suburban or the f150. I'm going to sell the f150 as soon as i get it out of impound. can i fight whiskey plates since i want to sell the F150? He is not on the title to my suburban but I'm the first name on the title for the F150. I dont have any money for a lawyer and I'm so afraid that I'm going to be stuck labeled as a drunk driver and I dont even drink. I dont want anything to do with the F150 so I just want to sell it and wash my hands with him and the truck.
Did he get the DWI driving one of the vehicles? In some circumstances, you may be able to get an exception granted to...
