Can you get arrested for DUI if you're not in your vehicle, but standing next to it?
Standing next to your vehicle alone, would not be a basis to put you in actual or physical control of the motor vehicle. Moreover, if the keys were not in the ignition nor in the vehicle, it is going to be hard to prove a DUI case. There would be no way of proving you intended to get into and drive the vehicle, simply by standing next to it.
