Were you visiting Minnesota from another state and arrested for DWI? Perhaps you were here on business, vacation or visiting for the holidays? Whatever the case, if you are not a resident of Minnesota and are charged with drinking and driving, then you could be facing an out-of-state DWI conviction. Your best bet is to immediately contact an experienced Minneapolis DWI lawyer.
