Misconceptions in an Arlington DUI

Contrary to popular belief you can be arrested for DUI in the state of Virginia for having a BAC level lower than the legal limit.  In Virginia, you can be arrested for DUI for any of the following five reasons:

It is also a common misconception that one can deny taking a chemical test and get away with it.  While you may refuse these tests, you will be charged with a refusal to submit to testing if you are arrested (which more than likely you will be.) Virginia’s DUI laws include a clause called “implied consent” which indicates that being given a driver’s license in the state of Virginia automatically gives police permission to test your BAC level at a DUI stop.

In a similar vein, you can also be arrested for operating a boat under the influence.  The aforementioned implied consent laws also apply to BUI.
