Sun City, AZ asked in DUI / DWI for Arizona

Q: I'm required to go to the police station that I was taken to on the 8th to get fingerprinted n mugshot. Should I go?

Why did t the police do this on the date of the "DUI"? I wasn't even given a court date. Just a impounded vehicle and this paper that says my dui charges and that I have to show up on a wed. at least 10 days from date of ticket to get thos done. No court date. They couldn't prove any impairment because I was sober but took my urine which will be positive because of drugs in my metabolism. But I was stone cold sober at the time. I'm afraid that if I show up I'm admitting guilt and I will be arrested again. Very confusing. My fingerprints are already on FBI national database. What's the deal. Took place in peoria, az. And btw I wasn't even driving. I guess I was really tired and accidentally fell asleep while scratching a lottery ticket.

A: Yes you should go. That is a court order.

It sounds as though you were cited and released. Fingerprinting is part of the booking process had the arresting officer decided to book you into jail you would’ve already been printed.

Lastly, your cooperation is in no way an admission of guilt.
