If you have been issued a subpoena that may indicate that the prosecutors may wish to use your statement in Court. If you have not the arresting officers will state a claim as to why the arrested him for DUI. There may come into question why they stopped him, and how he performed on the Field Sobriety Test. You should consult with an attorney. They will be able to discuss details that should not be posted online and give you a better idea of what kind of defense may be available.

I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
Did this happen on Federal Property?
Make sure that your attorney has experience handling a DWI/DUI in Federal Court; it is different that in State Court!
Until retained, this answer does not constitute legal advise, as it is based on extremely limited information.
I know you are looking for a quick and "reassuring" answer, but DUI defense can be a great deal more complicated than that. For example, an attorney may find an issue with the testing method or instrument that calls the BAC or BRAC number into question. At that point, the prosecutor may wish to use your statements as ammunition. This may also be relevant in a Suppression Hearing where they (the state) tries to use your call as reason to make the stop. Bottom line is that this question really demands formal representation by an experience DUI attorney. You can search profiles of attorneys by clicking "Find a Lawyer" on this site or go to KACDL.net and look for one nearby.
No attorney-client relationship has been created by answering this question. I make no guarantees as to the accuracy of any information I contribute in answering any inquiry on Avvo and I strongly encourage all concerns be addressed in the private counsel of an attorney personally contacted and retained.
