i was arrested a week ago and heard the officers discussing dui in the 4rh degree based on the medications i take which are all prescribed. i was in an acccident where i fell asleep and took out a street sign. i was the only car involved, though a witness saw me weaving. i took a breath alyzer which came up 0.00 and submitted to a blood test to show all my prescription meds. they wrote down most of the meds i take but i know they missed at lease 2. when brought to jail they told the officer behind the desk i was a write and release whatever that means. i received nothing showing any charges whatsoever and was told i would get a ticket in the mail. my rights were also not read to me. just wondering where i stand and what i should do i have a clean driving record and am 47 yr old female.they did not suspend my license or seem concerned about anything. dont they have to read you your rights? or advise you on what you are being booked on suspicion of? and if all of the meds are used as prescribed and have been for several years with no incident does that play a roll? i also have a carry permit and they gave me my gun back when i was released
