so what did you learn about drinking and driving? hopefully enough not to get caught doing it again!
DUI stands for "driving under [the] influence". It could be either alcohol or drugs, but I think alcohol is more common. Also, they could've found out the OP was drunk right away with a breathalyzer, whereas it'd probably take longer to confirm that she was in fact on drugs.
You dont think "hey... he just got thrown in jail for drinking and driving, so maybe i should call a cab or maybe not speed or do something stupid to get pulled over since i am drunk and am going to drive"? YDI for being a moron
You don't need to be drunk to get a DUI. You can get a driving under the influence charge if there's any legal or illegal narcotics, even prescription meds in your system that impair your ability to operate a vehicle. My boss has a DUI on his license shortly after recovering from a fractured spine and was driving after taking pain meds.
Why on earth would you panic and be in such a rush to bail him out you run a red light? What exactly did you think was going to happen to him in the, say, ten minutes extra it would have taken you to crive there carefully? YDI for being an idiot.
Agreed. What on Earth could make you think running a red light was okay? Basically, between that and the drunk driving you were extra determined to kill someone tonight. I hope you and your boyfriend plow yourselves into a tree before someone innocent has to pay the price for your selfishness.
