You need to hire an attorney to help you. The problems with the paperwork may help but the attorney would need all the facts + speak to any witnesses.

Your question raises a number of issues. Candidly, your case is not at all uncommon. It is likely the bar you left is one regularly monitored by the police in the hopes of effectuating DWI arrests.
That said, contact an attorney in your area who is familiar with the courts and DA's office. Make sure he or she has specific experience in DWI defense.

You should hire an attorney experienced in DWIs immediately.
A DWI arrest is a serious matter. Presuming the court has received a certified chemical breath test report, the judge is required by law to suspend your driver's license pending prosecution. However, you may be eligible for a hardship driver's license from the court which will allow you to drive to and from work, but such an application is best made with the assistance of qualified and experienced counsel.
Furthermore, should you be convicted of a DWI, there will be an additional license revocation period; a requirement for your to install and maintain an ignition interlock device for at least six (6) months; fines/probation/incarceration depending on your criminal history or lack thereof, etc...
This is a very important and complex matter. It should be treated as such.
