A: You can check public access (google Arizona public records); however, not all jurisdictions are on there. If you know the location you were pulled over/arrested then give it a few days and call the courts there. For example, if it was in Tempe, then you should call the Tempe City Court and ask. You should also check Maricopa County justice court website also as you would likely be in one of the justice courts if the arresting agency was DPS, ASU PD, or Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

In DUI cases where blood is drawn, sometimes you do not get charged until after the blood results become available in which case you will receive a summons in the mail.

If you are concerned about potential criminal charges, you should consult a criminal defense attorney to discuss in more detail. Several firms, including mine, offer free consultations.
