After a DUI investigation, the officer may arrest the person after a breath or blood test and book them in jail awaiting an initial appearance. Typically, however, the officer will cite the person with DUI and then release him or her. Sometimes, in more serious cases, the person will be detained.
In cases involving an accident, the officer may need to receive additional information about the accident in considering charging aggravated assault with a vehicle. In that case, the officer may release the person pending further investigation. If a person has been through a DUI investigation, but has not yet been charged, it would be important to have a Arizona DUI lawyer review the case and provide mitigating and exculpatory evidence prior to charges being filed.
