I was pulling into my driveway (right turn). The car behind me had been right on my rear(maybe a car length or a few inches more) so about half a block away I had began tapping my brake to indicate I was slowing down. I put on turn signal. Turning into my driveway the car behind me went onto the shoulder of the road and hit my two rear doors. Hit it with their left front fender by the headlight and kind of slid along the side due to cinders and stones that are on shoulder from winter weather.
We got out and did the "are you okay thing". Every one was calm. I said I was going inside to wake up my son. In the meantime the passenger had called police. When I came out he was already there. I admit I had two drinks that night. Really.
He started questioning me about drinking. I admitted I had had two drinks right before coming home. He breatholyzed me twice. I did the roadside test in my dirt driveway with stones on it. It has dips in it also. I thought I did well except for where you hold your foot up. This causes me pain due to compressed disks in my back, the pain was so sharp I kept putting my foot down.
I was handcuffed and taken down to the processing center which is located in the city and not in my township. I gave blood and answered some questions.
I was then put in a little cell and told they were calling my son to come get me. They ended up getting me a taxi. My son was so mad at me he refused to answer. I agree with him. I was handed my jacket, license, insurance and registration. That's it.
Shouldn't I have gotten a citation or will it becoming by mail or sheriff? In the back of my head I keep hoping that I was not cited but I am sure I was.
The best thing I can say about this is that it scared me, I won't drink ever again. I hadn't had a single drink in 23 years and just started drinking a bit right before bed(at home) in the last year or so after becoming depressed from some sudden life changes.
What do I do from here? My insurance said that if I was being cited my license would have been confiscated. No paperwork was given to me for anything. I am scared, panicked and confused but I am also getting my life together and seeking help for my depression. I definitely need to talk to someone.
Sorry for the length.
