Hello
This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
You can be charged and convicted even if your were not driving, since you have a potential to drive and have control over the vehicle since the keys were in your pocket.
Conviction will come down to any evidence of your intoxication.
Please note that I can only provide information for what you ask. In that regard, if you have other questions or need clarification, please post them here. Otherwise, I appreciate your Positive Rating as that is how I get credit for my time and information.
