How long does a police officer in Florida have to file a DUI ticket from the date of the incident?

i don't know your state's laws, but there is a little thing called due process. im not sure if it applies here but i basically says... if you are arrested(which i assume you were) then the police are obligated to file and process your citation with a reasonable timeframe(24 hrs on a weekday, 72 hrs on a weekend). if you think that they forgot or something, guess again. In Virginia, it will be arrested at site and book at police station when arrived. If happed at weekend, it will stay in jail until bond out or seeing judge on Monday.
