Las Vegas is known as the city that never sleeps, so there is always something to do. Even if you only had a couple drinks in a casino or club, the police can stop and arrest you on a Nevada DUI charge (484C) if you blow .08 or higher on a breathalyzer. If you refuse, they will arrest you under suspicion and the officers will take you to jail. The majority of times they will release you with a citation to appear in court, but If they didn’t, you have to wait until the judge sets bond. Then you can call someone to bail you out.

In either case, what do you do when you get home?

1. Talk to someone after the arrest to let them know what happened and how you’re feeling.
2. Save your receipts from the food and beverages that you had prior to the arrest.
3. Contact a Las Vegas DUI lawyer immediately. DUIs are complicated, so you want and expert to hear the details while they are still fresh.
