While it has certainly been known to happen, reaching a blood alcohol concentration of .20 percent is not an easy thing to do. Such a reading would place you in the so-called "super extreme DUI" category of Arizona law. There are numerous errors that can occur that impact the readings police take in DUI investigations. Faulty Breathalyzer equipment, mishandling of blood or urine samples and other issues can all contribute to inaccurate test results that can lead to much more serious charges than your case should merit.
If you have been arrested for an alleged super extreme DUI, contact an attorney with experience handling these often complex cases.
