Operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a misdemeanor in Virginia that rightfully carries serious penalties. Depending upon the charges filed, persons convicted of driving while impaired can face significant jail time, a revocation of their drivers license, and a steep increase in motor insurance rates. But as with any crime, not all people charged are guilty. Faulty equipment, poor procedure, and overzealous law enforcement can sometimes result in unwarranted arrests.
