Legal Question

Asked on: 6/02/12, 12:04 pm

I have a prior OVI conviction in Ohio.

A few weeks ago, I wrecked my car. The car was totaled and I was seriously injured; I spent almost 3 weeks in the hospital. I was able to call 911 myself. I am almost sure that I was over the legal alcohol limit. I was given blood on the way to the hospital in the ambulance. The police have been in contact with my parents. Today, over a month later, the police called my dad and said that they were waiting on the lab results, and would forward the results to the prosecutor. My question is, I was never placed under arrest or read my Miranda rights. As far as I know, a defendant must be placed under arrest BEFORE any chemical tests are conductrd. How can I be charged with a crime? What should I expect from this situation?
