They will typically tow it unless you managed to park it legally in a place that it can stay. But, yeah, otherwise they call a wrecker and they tow your truck or your car and they They'll search it before they do that so sometimes. They find additional evidence against you when they're doing that. Either evidence that you're possessing something else in your car, you shouldn't have or They'll find you know empty. Alcohol containers or something like that that. Makes you look worse so that's? That's usually what happens to your car. You will also be held up nine first time offenders. O. Is you're you're just GONNA get out, but they will hold you in custody until you are at least under the legal limit they've got. Hold you till you silver up. What does Oh Armeane?
