Did You Know You Can Still Be Charged With an Owi if Your BAC Was Below the Legal .08 Limit?
On behalf of J. Kippa Law, LLC | September 21, 2021
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation states, “if a police officer pulls you over and determines that you are impaired by alcohol and/or any other drug, you could be arrested and prosecuted, regardless of your BAC.”
No matter what your BAC is, if you are driving “under the influence” you may be charged with an OWI, according to Wisconsin law.
Wisconsin OWI charges should not be taken lightly. An OWI offense would show up on a person’s record even if it is a first-time offense. Having a drunk driving citation or charge on your record can significantly impact your future. Employers and other organizations have access to these files, and a charge may harm a person’s future employment opportunities.
