If you are arrested for a second OUI/DUI

If you are caught driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you will be detained and your car will be towed at your expense. Furthermore, you will be taken to a local police station to assess your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). You are legally over the limit if you are:

  • Under 21 with a BAC of 0.02% or higher
  • Over 21 with a BAC of 0.08% or higher
  • A commercial driver with a BAC of 0.04% or higher

If you fail or refuse a test, you will be held under the assumption that you unlawfully operated your vehicle. If you are caught driving under the influence a second time within 10 years of a first conviction, you are facing escalating consequences, including:

  • Maximum of two years of jail time and probation
  • 100 hours of community service
  • Fines of $1,000–$4,000
  • A minimum 45-day license suspension
  • At least three years required use of ignition interlock devices
