I hit a parked car in a parking lot when I was backing out of a parking space. I had been drinking. I parked my car, got out and we exchanged information. My car was parked and my keys were in my purse. My friend offered to drive me home so I was heading to his car when the police pulled into the parking lot. Witnesses called the police and told them about the accident. They wanted to give me a field sobriety test but I declined. I went to the station, was booked, and blew a .21 BAC. I got charged with a DUI. I am an Arizona resident (valid AZ drivers license) and this all happened in California, where my license was suspended a year ago when I resided in CA. I don't think it's legal that I was given a ticket for a DUI since I was not driving and didn't intend to drive?
