    hi, I'm 18 years old. I have three jobs and attend a community college. Recently I did something really stupid and not right. I was arrested for eluding police officers. I was coming home from work at 2 in the morning. I had cloudy judgement that early morning and ran instead of pulling over. I didn't have weapons or drugs. Just a stupid decision. I have three tickets before that. They are tickets for going 5 to 10 miles over. I'm a really good kid and try to help out my parents when I can. Is it possible that I can avoid getting my license suspended?? Please help....

    Should have thought about that before you decided to run from the LEOs.

    It's up to your lawyer to "explain" everything and get you the best possible deal.

    Boo hoo.
