Jon Bryant Artz DUI and Criminal Attorney, Lecturer and Editorial Consultant

Being charged with drunk driving such as a DUI or DWI (Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Intoxicated, respectively) is a very serious offense. If you are found guilty of drunk driving, it will include a hefty fine, significantly impact your ability to drive (with a suspended or revoked license), increase your insurance rates and could even include jail time.

Advice when you fail the field sobriety test and are charged with DUI

So you've been pulled over under suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), now what? Are you immediately arrested? Not likely, as the police officer must first establish probable cause (whether or not it’s probable that you are driving while intoxicated) before effectuating a formal arrest.

Calculate your blood alcohol content for a DUI

Jon Bryant Artz DUI and Criminal Attorney, Lecturer and Editorial Consultant
Your blood alcohol content is the concentration of alcohol in your blood expressed by a percentage. An alcohol content of 0.08 percent or higher is legally considered under the influence and illegal if you are operating a vehicle. If caught with a level equal to or greater than 0.08 percent, you will be arrested and charged with a DUI and will probably have your driver's license suspended.

17 Questions to ask yourself after being arrested for a DUI

Jon Bryant Artz DUI and Criminal Attorney, Lecturer and Editorial Consultant
This is a list of 17 questions that you should answer as soon as possible after you have been arrested for a DUI or DWI. Answering these questions will help you remember the circumstances of your arrest if and when you have to go to court. The document will also be very helpful to your DUI attorney in preparing your DUI defense. Times and the kinds of drinks are critical. If a driver recently drank alcohol before the first contact with law enforcement, that is good for the defense due to the time it takes for alcohol to become absorbed into the blood (as can be reflected in the breath) and a person's blood alcohol content rises from the time of the driving up to the time of its peak, which can take up to one hour.
