I was arrested for DUI but was not drinking, can I still be charged?

YES. The Pennsylvania DUI statute covers not only alcohol but also outlaws driving while under the influence of a controlled substance. If you had any illegal drug, i.e. cocaine, in your system you are guilty of DUI. It should also be understood that there is a zero tolerance for controlled substances while you are driving. If you have any amount in your system, even trace amounts, that is sufficient to sustain a conviction for DUI.
