A DUI or DWI occurs when someone is operating, or is in actual physical control, of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substance to the extent that their mental faculties are impaired and/or their blood alcohol content (BAC) is above the legal limit. Even for a first offense, penalties can include license suspension, substantial fines, community service, mandatory attendance at a state or DMV approved alcohol program, mandatory overnight incarceration and the required installation (at the offender's expense) of a car ignition locking device. In addition, an Arkansas DUI/DWI conviction stays on your record forever. It typically results in higher insurance premiums, and an offender may become ineligible for credit. Plus, a DUI/DWI could also jeopardize your employment opportunities. Click here for more information about Arkansas DUI and DWI.
