MOVED: Traveling from UK to US with DUI and unfinished VISA

Travel Forums General Talk MOVED: Traveling from UK to US with DUI and unfinished VISA

I am trying to travel from the UK to the US to visit a friend. I have traveled to the US a couple times before, but got a DUI in the UK a couple years ago, which requires I obtain a VISA prior to traveling again. I applied for a Visa and had an interview at the US Embassy in London a few months ago. I was told that I should get a medical exam to complete the application process. I did not go through with the medical, and my application is now closed out. I want to travel to the US in a few weeks. Is my passport now flagged due to the fact I began the Visa application process? How likely am I to gain entry into the US now, and again in the future, if I travel without getting the VISA? Someday I would like to move to the US, but for now I just need to travel to visit. I don't have time now to go through the entire Visa application process, as I want to travel ASAP. Suggestions/Opinions/Comments/Stories please!
