They made him take a blood test as well ... .04 ... DMV said there was no need for a hearing and so far no case shows up ... What about his impound fees etc...
Unfortunately you will most likely find the impound fees are still due and payable. As long as the police had reasonable cause to stop and arrest your son on suspicion of DUI, the impound is lawful.\
I would presume your son is over 21 if the DMV is saying a hearing is not necessary and he can keep his license. If under 21, it is against the law to drive with any measurable amount of alcohol in your system and there likely will be a filing.
I would double-check with the DMV to make sure they do not intend to suspend your son's driving privileges. You only have ten days from the date of the stop to request a hearing, otherwise it is deemed waived, so you need to be sure no action is to be taken.
Difficult to give you a concise answer because a good deal of information is missing.
Your son - is he a minor (under 18), or under 21? Both of these result in "different" criminal and DMV actions than a "standard DUI."
If he blew 0.06 and they made him take blood - the word "made" is key here - then he may be looking at a DUID (drug dui). This could delay issuance of a case as the DA awaits blood results (and works their way through a case filing back log.)
Did they take his license? Or give him a "pink sheet"?
