"What can I bring with me to the Alpharetta jail"

Posted by William H. Sherman on Dec 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

Question: I got a DUI in Alpharetta and I have to go to jail.  I got stopped on Windward Parkway.  I was pulled over for speeding and the police officer noticed I had an open container in the car.  It was a bottle of gin that I had been drinking.  I did everything he wanted me to do and I was arrested.  I blew a .296 on the breath test.  It was embarrassing because it was not my first DUI in Alpharetta and they remembered me.  But at least I was not involved in a car accident, like last time.

On the night I was arrested I had some drinks at Taco Mac and I had dinner at Ippolito's.  I was with friends and then when I went to my car to drive home I took a couple of shots from the gin bottle.

Since I have to spend some time in the Alpharetta jail I was writing to find out what I could bring with me.  I take vitamins and drugs for high blood pressure and diabetes.  So I need to know what I can take to the jail and what I can't have.
