    Yes, as to "public place." That doesn't mean that you don't have a ton of ways to challenge your arrest. There are numerous DWI attorneys in Houston. Use the FIND A LAWYER tab and start interviewing some immediately, as you only have a short window to keep your license. Here's some case law if you're interested: "…Texas courts have held that even areas that strictly limit public access may qualify as public places.

Often times a law suit must be filed, and right before trial (or early into the trial) magically the insurance company offers a fair settlement. You need to contact a local personal injury attorney.

    Attorney Gene Beaty definitely knows what he's talking about with DWIs. So don't do unnecessary worrying. You have an attorney and it's first offense. Don't say anything specific about the event online or to anyone except your attorney.

    The state may or may not have a good case against you. As for the fact that your wife was not cited, that may just be unfair. Sorry, life isn't fair.

    You can sue. As others said... definitely sue with an attorney, so you can check with them regarding what effect (if any) presence of alcohol will have. Try the FIND A LAWYER tab above on this site and search for local personal injury attorneys in your area. Call a few, and choose one that is a good fit, with a low contingency fee.
