Am I responsible for medical bills for treatment I didn't want while under police custody?
I was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and did have a very high blood alcohol content. I had sprained my ankle earlier in the evening and it was swelling already a bit when I got pulled over. I have sprained my ankles many times during sports, so I knew I didn't need to go to an emergency department. The officer took me anyway and now I'm sitting here looking at a $700 bill! I didn't even receive treatment! I didn't get ice, a wrap, nothing! I am livid. I'm hoping someone with more knowledge than I about our RIDICULOUS legal system can help me!!! There is no way I can pay this bill!
Additional Details
Oh, and for those who want to lecture and reprimand me for driving drunk, I don't need your advice, thanks. If you knew the whole story, like how I was kicked out of the house i was at, my phone got locked inside after I was pushed down stairs by that same guy when he got home then you might have a clearer picture. What about how he stood in the lawn screaming at me to leave and throwing rocks at my car? Oh, you wouldn't have left then either? Than you are as ridiculous as the legal system and moronic to boot. I know the consequences of drunk driving, I have a sister who almost died thanks to it. This was five miles and I was in danger where I was with no way to call for help. If I had any other option, it would have been utilized. Cops need not reply. Personally, I hate them. The only arguement they have is "what if you need us someday?" and guess what, I never will. I have a gun, that's the only advantage you have on the average citizen. Oh, and the right to be an ignorant P.O.S.

So why didn't you refuse to be seen while you were in the ER? You could have refused to be seen and refuse any treatment even while in Police custody. The hospital's ER will see and treat you if needed so long as you do not refuse. Perhaps you were too intoxicated to realize what was happening? lol

Sorry, looks like you are gonna be responsible for this bill. Shouldn't have gotten in the car to drive after drinking.

Did you tell the officer you refused? How intoxicated were you determined to be? If it was high, the officer may have felt you were not in your right frame of mind and you should be looked at anyway. The reason you were probably taken was so that the officer could prove that one: He/she did not cause the injury to you and two: that you were checked out medically. Many people could get an injury and then get pulled over and arrested like you, and then blame the police for causing the injury. Think it hasn't happened? It's just CYA for the officer and your own well being. Don't want that to happen again? I'd suggest don't drink and drive.

As also mentioned above, you could have refused at the hospital. There's an Against Medical Advice form you could have filled out.

So you were driving drunk, with a "very high blood alcohol content". It's a real good thing you didn't crash your car. You could have seriously injured or killed someone else, or seriously injured yourself. Would you have been able to afford the bill then?

As it happens, you now have an arrest for DWI. Your insurance is going to go up, if it isn't canceled altogether. Can you afford that?

Luckily, all that happened is that you got a bill from the emergency room for unsolicited treatment. That should count as a $700 lesson that you just learned. If you can't afford an unsolicited hospital bill, or afford the legal costs from a DWI arrest, then don't drive drunk.

EDIT: I don't have to receive e-mail on here. And it's just as easy for you to hit someone if you're driving drunk after being pushed down the stairs and kicked out of the house than it would be if you were driving drunk after being at a fun party with no altercations. Maybe even more so, since you were being emotional.

Let me get this straight.... It's ok to drive drunk, but the legal system is RIDICULOUS because you got a bill for your medical expenses???

Hey, don't worry about it.... when they send you to prison, you'll get free medical for your entire 20 years......
