Is this some type of misconduct?
I received a 3rd dwi in metairie in may of 2011 and now I'm going for my final status update on jan 25th. The cop that arrested me quit the force and moved to another state. It took them 4 yrs to get him here to testify for motions. They have no clue where any video tape is and disregarded my testimony about being threatened by another cop that "If you don't blow, we going to strap you down and take your blood". So I was forced to blow. The judge is allowing my results. Here is the catcher. The judge asked the prosecutor some questions about a court date and he lied to the judge about the cop cooperating to come to court. This is by far the complete opposite. They had to threaten him with an attachment if he doesn't show. This was all said on record. This makes me question the tape. Where is it? Is that cop on there threatening me so they are hiding evidence?
The first part of your question deals with continuances and delays to trial. Unfortunately, unless you objected to any...

What to do next?
I was involved in a auto accident in September 2016 while driving a company vehicle, the vehicle I was in flipped and overturn. I gave my statement on what happened between myself, 18 wheeler & another driver. The police officer cited me for improper lane change. I have been to court the court wants a restitution of property letter also I filed a continuance for another court date the police nor other party was present so I could have gotten it dismissed possibly if my legal rep was present also my license is in jeopardy of being put on hold. I was transported to a local hospital & found out days later I have some moderate to significant injures. Its Feb 2017 I have been reaching out to my employer corporate office to help get the information I need ,at this point and time I have yet to receive a call back. My license will be suspended in a couple of days because my employer hasn't responded & I am in fear that they are trying to foot the bill of damages on me. What should I do?
You need to hire an attorney or post this question under a different area of law. It's not DUI related.

Can I be accused of any charges simply because I was affiliated with them because I paid for the airfare ?
Perhaps. You may be cast in the role as a principal to the other passenger's possession, esp since you paid for his...
