Thank you, ***** ***** what i need!First a little about me: I am 25 years old, from Norway and i am a student in monaco. I am nice guy and have never been in trouble before, never even gotten so much as a parking ticket. but here is the case: I was walking home from a party in Monaco, i was to drunk and i dont remember it to much. But there was this car/mini truck which was standing along the road, i dont know why but i was very close to it and tried to open it, more as a joke i would belive. unfortunatly the door was open, and i sat inside. There was also the keys on the dashboard. So i started the car and drove 5 meters before i knew i had done something wrong, but there was no place to stop, so in total i drove 800 meters or so before i parked the car. No harm to anyone or anything. When i got out two men approached me, they beat me and took my phone and some cash from my wallet. After that another man walked down to the police again, he said we could either fix this with money or we could go to the police. Since i was beaten and a little shaken i choose the cops, which arrested me on the spot and took a alkohol test which scored 0.84, (0.5 is the legal in monaco). I was then taken to the station, went through all the procedures and will have my hearing 14 of march. But what do i do now, will i go to prison? does this hurt my future, is there anyway of keeping this of my record, is there anything i can do to fix this, or is this a hopeless situation. Im a master student with to degrees in sports, and all i want is to be sucessfull and live a peacefull life, i cannot belive what i have done, i am so regretfull, i will do anything to make this right, but have no idea what to do
