I was convicted of a DUI three years ago in California and recently filed to have my probation terminated early. While visiting family and friends in another part of California this past weekend, I was involved in a car accident. I was hit by another car and when the police arrived they performed a field sobriety and breathalyzer test on me. I was over the legal limit, but I was not arrested. The officers confiscated my license and drove me to my family's house just a few blocks away. I have several questions about all of this.
Will the court that is handling my early probation termination find out about this before my appearance in several weeks?
Will I be charged for a second DUI?
Will I need to come back to the county that the accident took place to handle everything?
