About week ago I went to meet my partner in a pub who suffers from
Endured psychosis
Severe PTSD
Disassociative amnesia
Personality disorder
And they the basic
Social anxiety
In my opinion should not be drinking at all , after drinking for a few hours we started walking home around 12:30 on the way my partner had a ptsd episode involving her running in front of moving cars etc and generally put her self in serious danger , as I was trying to get her home and walk her home safely the police arrived and assumed we was having a domestic I explained to the officer what the situation was however the officer was having none of it without doing any checks he said I had to make my own way home and he would take my partner home , he then instructed me to go to my car to get my partners belonging this I did under his supervision, after doing so I started walking to the local taxi rank I realised somehow my house key had fallen of my bunch of keys when getting my partners belonging from the car , so I walked back to my car turned on the lights to search for my house key , as I was walking away from the car the same officer appeared and arrested me for drunk in charge , the breatherlyzer reading was 53mg at 1:35 am at the station the breatherlyzer wasn't working so I had to do a blood test at 3:10 am I am still waiting on the results for this ,
The car was on a pub car park the pub was closed wen I returned
Am really worried and losing sleep over this as anyone any advice or any idea what the outcome of this maybe
Thanks in advance

Hi @Mux03o
Sorry no one saw or replied your post. I was sad to read your story, sounds like an awful experience. How did it all pan out?

That sounds a long way beyond harsh - almost like the policeman took it on himself to judge you for what he perceived as abuse and decided to make life as difficult for you as possible. This is NOT what they are employed to do, I hope your partner can put the record straight and they wont pursue you for what sounds like a highly questionable charge.

Good luck!

Hopefully not since then since then she has been given identity cards to wear around her neck incase she as a mental health episode again so the emergency service know how to react just still awaiting blood tests can't even get a solicitor till then

i really hope someone somewhere weighs up the evidence and cuts you a break. "drunk in charge" is one of those charges that seem to be a bit of a grey area.

Not actually been charged with anything yet am assuming it will be a drunk in charge as it was radioed threw as a drunk in charge however the blood samples they gave me had drink driving written on it

Blimey, if they do go ahead with it i'd be very tempted to find a decent specialist solicitor to take a look. To me (admittedly a rank amateur) it seems neither right nor fair. Hopefully you wont hear anything further.
