So I had 3 drinks at Chills after work in the matter of 2 and a half hours. After I drove home got on the freeway in the slow lane and got cut off by a car that almost hit me, which made me panick and I swerved toward the middle barricade and spun out, my car was totaled. Nobody was involved but I was arrested for a DUI my BAC was .111
You first have to worry about what will happen with the DMV, then you can worry about court.
You'll be charged with both VC 23152(a) and VC 23152(b). The (a) count is "driving under the influence" of an alcoholic beverage, drug, or both. The (b) count is driving with a BAC of .08 or above.
The consequences will depend on if this a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd DUI for you and if there was any injury to anyone else involved.
Make sure to speak to counsel to see if any defenses can/may apply to your case. Don't delay!
