Here are the penalties applicable to a first DUI offense in Arkansas. These penalties include both administrative action by the state licensing department, as well as criminal sentencing ordered by local courts. These penalties are subject to both state statutes and case-specific considerations -- that is, elements that may be unique to a specific case.
Sobriety checkpoints are legal in Arkansas (see 827 S.W.2d 157 (Ark. 1992)). These checkpoints (also referred to as "mobile checkpoints" or "roadblocks") are police traffic stops that are not tied to any specific or individual suspicions.
