I was driving without my lisense because I had lost it when I slightly bumped into the car infront of me at the red light. Not to mention I had been drinking so should not have been driving in the first place. I completely freaked out and parked my car..and I left it there.
My friend who was still in the car was completely drunk.
So the people who i hitt called the cops and the cops came and my car got towed..
Anyways the cops called my parents and told them I left and that i may have been drinking..since thats what the witnessses had said.
Right now my car is still at the impound and they said I cant take it out for A MONTH because the police seized it..
Does anyone know what I should do now? Or what will happen..
Can they give me a DUI ..since they dont have prooof, besides their word?
I was going to say I had not been drinking, that i was the d.d for my friend and that I shouldnt of left but I completely freaked out because I realized I didnt have my ID and i didnt want to get in trouble so I left to go grab a cab and get it..by the time i came back my car was towed?
Or..i dont know..im pretty freaked out. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Clearly you haven't if you decided to come in here and admit to what you did and now are looking for more ways to try and cover your *** as best as possible.
Not only were you driving while under the influence, but expect to be also be charged for leaving the scene of a crime, driving without a license, and who knows what else.
You said they have no proof except the word of the witnesses, and while that might be enough.... you just gave them the proof right here in this post which is just as good as a confession.... and all one needs to do is track back your IP address from this post to the computer you used to make this post and if it's the computer at your parent's home.... consider yourself screwed.
What you should be doing is accepting the consequences, go to the police and tell them the complete truth and everything you remember of the incident. If you do so, the fact that you decided to co-operate with them and tell them the truth will make this whole situation a lot easier on you then if you continue to try and cover this up, because eventually you're going to slip up on something (Like posting all of this right here for starters) and they'll catch you.... then they'll add even more charges to the already existing ones.
Tell them you freaked out, got scared and that is why you decided to try and hide what happened and they may go easy on you... especially if you start to co-operate.
But the longer you keep this up and the longer you keep trying to cover everything up, the more it will prove that you didn't learn from this and you refuse to accept your guilt, which will only make things worse for you in the long run.
Remember.... It's their job to investigate these things and they've dealt with a lot of drunk drivers over the years.... they're experts.... you're obviously not.
I'm not trying to insult you, I'm giving it to you straight.... don't d*ck around with this.
