    If they refuse you arrest them for DWI anyway, then get a court-ordered blood sample. At that point it doesn't matter what the sample is they still get charged.

    Not so quick... Don't know about Arkansas, but in Cali you can still get a DUI with a BAC under .08
    Here in NY you can be charged with Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) at a .06 or .07%BAC.

    Here's she's fine to have a beer, provided she's of age to consume alcohol (automatic DUI if you're a minor and have a detectable trace of alcohol), and as my other collegaues from the other states said, she's not on any court order preventing the use of alcohol.

    That said - Don't Drink. Don't Drive. Don't go to Jail. It's really that simple.
    What has Catholic got to do with anything? I'm assuming your knowledge of the RUC is either read about or heard about or maybe thats a tongue in cheek comment (i sincerely hope so).

    They're murdering scum, they allowed UVF murder squads to kill two of my uncles, taunted me about it before and after. They taunted the mother of young Daniel McColgan before allowing 13 bullets to put in his body. I'll show you the letter his mother gave me. If thats your idea of fine men and women, God help Texas.

    In California, its common to get three years probation which shows on the DL return that they are in violation with any alcohol in their system, (I.E. .01%). It was recently added to the CVC to make it an infraction rather how it used to be charged as a Misd, [166(a)(4)PC].

    Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol While on Probation for Prior DUI.

    23154. (a) It is unlawful for a person who is on probation for a violation of Section 23152 or 23153 to operate a motor vehicle at any time with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.01 percent or greater, as measured by a preliminary alcohol screening test or other chemical test.

    (b) A person may be found to be in violation of subdivision (a) if the person was, at the time of driving, on probation for a violation of Section 23152 or 23153, and the trier of fact finds that the person had consumed an alcoholic beverage and was driving a vehicle with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.01 percent or greater, as measured by a preliminary alcohol screening test or other chemical test.

    (c) (1) A person who is on probation for a violation of Section 23152 or 23153 who drives a motor vehicle is deemed to have given his or her consent to a preliminary alcohol screening test or other chemical test for the purpose of determining the presence of alcohol in the person, if lawfully detained for an alleged violation of subdivision (a).

    (2) The testing shall be incidental to a lawful detention and administered at the direction of a peace officer having reasonable cause to believe the person is driving a motor vehicle in violation of subdivision (a).

    (3) The person shall be told that his or her failure to submit to, or the failure to complete, a preliminary alcohol screening test or other chemical test as requested will result in the suspension or revocation of the person's privilege to operate a motor vehicle for a period of one year to three years, as provided in Section 13353.1.
    Added Sec. 5, Ch. 749, Stats. 2007. Effective January 1, 2008. Operative January 1, 2009.

    You can get a DUI Drugs, or if you're under 21 DUI is between .04 and .08, then it's DWI after .08. Otherwise, unless there are very strange circumstances the prosecutor won't charge under .08.

    Have arrested for a BAC of 0.00 before. She was high as a kite though and the blood draw I got convicted her without an appeal.

    Now, to answer your question. Unless a court order has been entered against her specifically prohibiting her from drinking at all, she can drink as many as she wants to drink prior to driving...as long as her BAC is under .08.

As someone who grew up in Belfast, Ireland, i saw at first hand a vile corrupt police force, your decency and bravery is to be lauded.

    Well, there are little cards out there that you can get from your local PD. The card shows what your BrAC will be after how many drinks, how much time, and how much you weigh.

    I pulled over a guy the other night who was DUI. He told me he had 2 beers and he was not lying. His BrAC was .133. Those 2 beers....were 40 oz a piece in less than an hour.

    It happens a LOT! MOST people dont get caught are able to make it home ok, some do not and those are the ones we here about.
    Some people can drink all night...if its spaced appropriately and theyre eating the right things that can absorb alcohol, they can be ok.

    Its best just to get a ride or call a friend or cab

    Not worth the risk!

    Yup, she's fine with a single beer, assuming it isn't the size of a fish tank or soemthing. Her prior conviction won't matter as far as charging her, but where it might come into play is in the sentencing. Indiana, for example, makes your 2nd DUI in five years a felony instead of a misdemeanor.
    Also,tell her to leave my mug the hell alone
