So, you got a DUI...

Disapproval Squirrel stands in judgment.

Veni Vidi Bibi. I came. I saw. I drank. 

You weren't planning on it. You were planning on a quiet evening at home. Maybe some ice cream and binge-watching some Game of Thrones in your comfy clothes. But no. 

Your friend called. 

You know who I'm talking about. 

That one friend who carefully weaves fun persuasion into a masterfully-crafted, perfectly-worded quasi-guilt trip and can usually talk you into just about anything. 

The next thing you know, one beer turns into 4 and then some dumb*** starts ordering shots. 

It's all fun and games until about 4 hours later and:

If you're not the guy in the striped pants, this is totally not cool.

The only thing worse than a hangover... a hangover in jail...

So what happens now? 

Well, it depends on your unique situation:
  • Is this your first offense? 
  • Was there an accident?
  • Did you take a breath or blood test?
  • Did the officer get the evidentiary test within 2 hours of stopping you?
  • Did you punch the officer at any point during your arrest? (You know who you are.)
But generally speaking, you're going to spend some time in jail. At the bare minimum 12 hours - likely longer, from 2-4 days. 

Your car was probably towed at an exorbitant cost and is, right now, accruing a daily storage fee for every day you haven't retrieved it. 

Once DMV gets notified that you've been arrested for DUI, they are going to suspend your driver's license for at least 90 days. 


Most people don't realize this. Even if your criminal case gets reduced to a reckless driving, or is thrown out altogether, DMV will still punish you.
