Can you be arrested at your home and given a DWI?
I was involved in a minor fender bender with no injuries the car I bumped had minor scratch and she waved that it was ok. I came home and had 3 drinks. After 30 -45 minutes a knock at my door proved to be police who said I was arrested for hit and run. Went to police station and officer ask if I had been drinking. I said yeah, what s wrong w that? The hit and run was cleared up but he gave me citation for DWI. He has on police report I was arrested however I was not fingerprinted, no mug shot. A friend picked me up after an hour. That s how long I spent at police station. I consented to breath test which reflected I had been drinking. Can they do that?

Can I be fired if I refuse a drug test?
My company does testing from a generated list of 10 employees. If I am not on this list do I have to take the drug test? They were testing today and I was asked to be an alternate. I refused. Couldn't figure out why they would need me as an alternate when all the employees on the list were at work.
People are generally "at will" employees and can be terminated for any reason unless there is a specific law against it....

Is it legal to get arrested for leaving the scene, when the person is in fear? And DWI for drinking after she got home?
My sister Dropped me off at home and on her way home(which is less than 1mile from my house), Decided to go thru fast food, for a late nite snack!(fast-food place is 1/2mile from her house), while in the drive-thru(the exact time was 10:20pm,,,,when then people in the car in front of her jumped out yelling that she had ran into them! she immediately felt trapped and threatened, she searched for her cell and could not find it! (I had grabbed her cell, by accident, when I got out of her car) scared&frantically looking for her cell, she panicked when the driver of the other vehicle tried to open her drivers door, she put her car in reverse, then drove immediately back to my house. But I was on my way to give her cell back. She was convinced that the people in the other car was trying to harm her and she was alone with no phone! She then drove to her house&thankfully seen me. She started try'n to explain what happened,but was so upset I couldn't make sense of what she was saying. So I told her to take one of her prescribed anxiety pills (Xanax) with acouple glasses of wine. While telling me what happened, the police knocked at the door. They arrested her with leav'n scene & DWI.

What do I do to request Article 894? Where do I even go or do I call?
I got my first DWI in West Monroe, Louisiana. I have never been in trouble. I'm currently applying for Law School and taking my BAR in July. I do not want anything on my record. I know my court is set in the city court. I do not know if Article 894 is something I need to go to the DA for and request now before I got to trial or if I should try to get a private lawyer in on it. Since I'm in college and not holding a fulltime job, I just want to be able to put this behind me and still have my future. I am not sure if I ask for a stay at my arraignment or plead guilty or ask can I have a 894.
Before making any decisions you should speak with a DWI/DUI attorney in your area. You can find some here on AVVO by...
