NWR: I was arrested Monday!!
Okay ladies, let me start by saying I am scared out of my freaking mind. On Sunday I attended and helped coordinate a baby shower. I arrived around 11am to help setup the decorations and as soon as I arrived from 11am until about 9pm I was drinking champagne on and off throughout the day (more-so during the baby shower, a couple of cups here and there during the setup and clean up part) I swear I was not drunk. During the setup part of the day I helped make jello shots, while doing so vodka spilled on my shirt. On the way home, around 10pm I got pulled over for speeding, I'm guessing the officer smelled the vodka that spilled on me, he asked had I been drinking and I responded yes. NEVER would I have imagined that I would be arrested. The officer then asked me out of the car and had me perform those sobriety test on the side of the road, I was crying uncontrollably during the entire thing and after doing 2 of 5 I told him no more, he said he had to arrest me. During the booking, I refused the breathalyzer (my thinking at the time was this will help me in court), not knowing in the state of Fl refusing a breathalyzer automatically suspends your driver's license. This all happened on Monday, after finally getting out of jail on Monday I spent the rest of that day and the majority of Tuesday crying. I don't know what to do, I feel like I messed up so bad, but I know I wasn't DUI material when I was arrested. I have always been the type to call someone to come pick me up if I feel like I crossed the line. After all this, my question is, has any of you been arrested or faced a DUI charge? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks. Monique
