If an officer does not charge me, and lets me go, can he still charge me later on? 3 Answers as of October 20, 2015

I was pulled over for a minor traffic violation, was technically under arrest because I was told I could not leave but the officer let me go with no charges against me though. If he wanted to, could he charge me with those same offenses, say, in a week or longer?

It is possible that you can be charged at a later date and time for an incident that occurred earlier, however, as time goes on, the likelihood of such a scenario drops.

You could be charged later but it is not too likely on a DUI. I assume you were not given any sort of court date.
