Arizona drivers caught with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher can be arrested and charged with DUI. The consequences are more severe, however, for drivers charged with an aggravated DUI.
An aggravated DUI charge is not based on BAC. Instead, DUIs are elevated to aggravated DUIs for the following reasons: The driver caused an accident resulting in extensive property damage, serious bodily injury or death A minor under the age of 15 was in the vehicle at the time of the driverís arrest The driver was operating the vehicle on a suspended or revoked license The driver has been charged with more than three DUIs within the past seven years The driver has a prior criminal record
An aggravated DUI is a felony offense in Arizona. As a felony, penalties for aggravated DUI include: Time in state prison Large fines, probation, community service Driverís license suspension or revocation Mandatory alcohol awareness classes
