Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
1. If the blood test was done at the hospital, it can come back very quickly --- within hours of the test being taken.
2. If you were placed under arrest, there should be an officer at or near you until you're booked and released on bond, etc. I don't know how unaccompanied you were, or for how long, but it likely doesn't have anything to do with the blood test or the results.
That said, the good thing about a blood test dui is that they're easier to beat in court because, in order for the prosecutor to get a conviction, the state must call every person that was involved in the blood testing process to create a chain of custody of what happened to the blood from the time it left your body to the time it was tested in the lab.
Often, all of the people aren't subpoenaed for court, and if there's a break in the chain of custody, it certainly could raise enough doubt for the court to find in your favor.
Thus, you should consider reaching out to a local DUI lawyer and discuss your case and possible defenses to the charge, given that it is a blood test-based dui.
