To be charged with DWI an individual must have a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher determined by a breathalyzer or blood test. Alternatively an individual could be charged if refusing to take a breathalyzer or blood test.

The charges under DWI/DWAI can lead to either misdemeanor or felony prosecution. The aggravating factors can include blood alcohol level, any past criminal history, involvement in an accident (non-fatal/fatal), and if there was a child 15 or younger in the vehicle (Leandra's Law). Most first time DWI charges will be tried as a misdemeanor, but under Leandra's Law even if it is your first DWI charge it will be tried as a felony. If you have any prior DWI convictions your charge will be tried as a felony also.

Repercussions can include civil penalties, such as suspension or loss of your drivers license, increased insurance premiums, and the forfeiture of your vehicle.
