I am sorry to hear this
Here is that penal codehttps://law.justia.com/codes/georgia/2010/title-40/chapter-6/article-15/40-6-391It is issued when drugs or alcohol are involved and can have very serious consequences including license suspension.
As such it is best to hire an attorney to see of any of the evidence can be excluded or if the attorney can arrange a better deal if the prosecutor has a strong case with solid evidence
