Blew a .086 on a field test and was taken in for blood test then released, what are my options?
Was driving back from a friend's house and was flagged for speeding. (not radared but based on cop's estimation). Committed the two big no no's unfortunately, and told the cop i had a beer and submitted to the field test and breathalyzer twice (blew a ,086). I agreed to be taken to the hospital to get a blood test and was allowed to be picked up and taken home instead of taken to jail. What should be my next steps as to fighting this case (kind of dug myself a hole) and if my blood test come back under ,08 will they help my case at all? Will this blood test result be available to me or be released? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Dui arrest?
I was pulled over a night after drinking with some friends which I shouldn't had done. I was a minor at that point. I got pulled over and the officer asked me if I was drinking. They did some test afterward and issue me a citation ticket and a form that says I was drinking under age. They then asked me if someone was nearby to pick me up since I couldn't drive, and I said yes. Then when the person arrive, I was free to go. Does this count as a arrest and will it show in my record? I Wasn't taken down to the station and they didn't call my parents, but will this still count as a arrest? Another thing is that a mail was send after a few days to my house from the CHP saying that I was arrested. But I wasn't taken to custody and no picture or finger were taken. does still count as an arrest?
Is CHP California Highway Patrol? Do you have a court date?

The arresting officer won't be present unless you're at trial or a motion to suppress evidence. You need a lawyer.
DUI--- Assuming I have a public defender- is he going to represent me at the court hearing ?
Does it mean that he or she will be responding to the questions instead of me?
Public defenders cannot represent you at DMV hearings but they can represent you during your court proceeding.
I will ask for a DUI public defender . Will I be asked any other questions besides the ones determining my eligibility?
Should I be prepared for any questioning besides eligibility for a public defender or the second court date will be scheduled for that purpose?
