Can I get a DWI in a hotel parking lot.
I had driven for about 13 hours to get to Salem Virginia for a shut down job. I decided to have a few drinks while I sat in my vehicle in the hotel parking lot so I could smoke since the hotel is 100% smoke free. It was cold that night so I had the vehicle running using the heater and I feel asleep. The police came through the parking lot and woke me up and saw the empty beers and asked me to submit to a field sobriety test which I refused because I thought I was on private property and had permission to drink in the parking lot from the hotel management. So I was arrested and charged with DWI.

DWI Conviction in North Carolina >15 years ago now affecting renewing Virginia DL
My husband went to renew his VA DL and was told something in NC set off an alert. They didn't seem too concerned at the secretary of state, and went about taking his photo for his ID, etc. Today he received a notice stating NC is requiring an alcohol assessment, $100 fine, driving classes, and some form he needs to complete (which sounds shady because the form does not have the BAC and has it listed as NA, and has an email address of He took care of all of the NC requirements years ago, and has even renewed his VA DL since his NC conviction. He hasn't drank in YEARS, he was in his 20's at the time and now at 44 years old has to deal with this.

We have a four year old son and really do not feel like driving to North Carolina to "solve" this issue that isn't even in NC records anymore.
