I left a restaurant after having 3 light beers and an IPA. I hit a vehicle that was parked on the side of the road, not very bad but cops were called and needed to file accident report. I admitted to the cop the beverages that I had, he placed me under arrest and then took me to the local hospital for blood to be taken. About half an hour after, the arresting officer took me home, returned my weapons and we ended on a firm handshake.
I received my accident report and it reads the prime factor of accident is "other improper driving actions" however, it does say that I had the number of beers I said I had in the officers description. The bac section is also unknown. What can I expect?
There is no definitive answer to your question. It sounds that certainly if the officer wanted to charge you with DUI, they could. You will have to wait and see what the officer decides to do. An accident where you have been drinking alcohol is a classic DUI case for the Commonwealth. Perhaps you got lucky, but time will tell.
If you do get charged with a DUI, contact a local attorney immediately so that they can tell you what options are available.
