(Driving Under the Influence)

Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is charged as a gross misdemeanor in Washington State, unless prior history gives rise to felony DUI.

There are a number of ways you can be charged with DUI, with the most common being you provide a breath or blood test where your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is above .08 or you refused to provide a sample and the officer alleges to have probable cause to arrest for DUI. When charged with this offense, you will be subject to both a criminal proceeding and an administrative action from the Department of Licensing. In most cases, you will have 20 days from the incident date to request an administrative hearing to prevent automatic suspension of your license. BAC levels above .15 and alleged refusals carry greater potential consequences than BAC levels under .15. Consequences can be significantly greater if a person has prior convictions for or reductions from DUI.
