DUI charges can be confusing and difficult to understand. While anyone found to have a Blood/Breath Alcohol Content (BAC) over 0.08% may be arrested for impaired driving, a BAC of 0.15% or higher can trigger an “Extreme” DUI charge in the State of Arizona.
An Extreme DUI is a class 1 misdemeanor. If you are found guilty, your penalties may include:
In addition to these court-ordered penalties, your driver’s license may be suspended for 90 days and you may be required to have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle for a period of one year. There is no reduction of the one year period for a conviction for an Extreme DUI.
