Even though it’s my first time being arrested, I’m a 20 year old female with emotionally unstable personality disorder, anxiety, depression ?

& suicidal. I was arrested for being drunk & disorderly, assaulting 2 emergency workers and criminal damage. I am remorseful, I never intended or meant to hurt the police officers or break their body cam, I got drunk and headed to the bridge because I was suicidal. Anyway, am I still screwed? I’m under investigation but released, I’m just worried I’m in serious trouble and won’t get away with what happened

    You won't "get away with it". Mental heath issues are only a legal defense if they prevent you from knowing right from wrong. Since you are remorseful, that is not the case.
