What to do if I apparently hit a mailbox coming home from a friend’s house and someone saw it and called the police?

My car is in the garage with damage to it. I don’t have a license either. What are my options? The police knocked on my door twice yesterday.

Stop posting on web pages that are public.  Hire an attorney early tomorrow morning, and discuss your case, and your bond.  You will probably be arrested, and should be prepared.  Do not discuss the case online or with anyone except an attorney in a confidential setting.
