Minneapolis, MN asked in DUI / DWI for Minnesota

Q: I was arrested for a dwi while in my friends car and they now want to impound the vehicle

They had forgotten to give me papers for "temporary use of a vehicle" along with my arresting copies of the breathalyzer and info packet on dui/dwi, & how to get a special license. It's been almost a month, can I get my friends car out of it? As I took her car and not mine? They said they would need to impound the vehicle.

A: It’s unclear if you mean the vehicle is impounded or being forfeited. You should reach out to an attorney to address the particulars.
