Arizona officially uses the term “driving under the influence” (DUI) instead of “driving while intoxicated” (DWI). However, some people still use DWI and DUI interchangeably to refer to drunk or drugged driving.
An officer’s investigation into your DUI doesn’t end with your arrest. If you are arrested for DUI, the officer will typically ask that you submit to a blood, breath, or urine test to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC). If you refuse the test, your license will be suspended for at least 12 months (unless you successfully challenge the arrest later.)
