Minneapolis, MN asked in DUI / DWI for Minnesota

Q: I got a dwi on august 8 which I found out nothing has been filed with the court yet. Got a call from the cop last night.

The cop wants to impound my friends vehicle which I was driving when I got stopped but they told my friend where it was and she just went and picked it up and went home on the day this happened. He also says he forgot to give me the summons or ticket. All I got when I left was the notice and order of revocation and my test results and the temporary license. I dont know what to do beings hes calling me and telling me this stuff and i dont have a public defender yet since nothing has been filed with the courts. What do I do?
