Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you. Given the circumstances as you describe them, no I don't think you have anything to worry about. With the low BAC, and presumably because you must not have appeared to be that under the influence (because you can still get a DUI with a BAC under the legal limit), it sounds like the officer was letting you off with a warning and was most concerned for your safety and public safety, which is why they had you stay in a parking lot for awhile before allowing you to leave. If they had wanted to arrest you, or give you a citation to appear for a DUI charge (which is basically an "arrest"), they would have done it that night. Your complete satisfaction is my goal. If you need additional information or clarification about my answer, please reply, and I'm happy to assist further.
