There is a provision in our Arizona law that punishes minors for having alcohol in their system while driving a car. It is often referred to as a “baby DUI” by state prosecutors, DUI defense attorneys, and local Judges. However, there is nothing “baby” about the punishments that come with an underage DUI charge.

Pursuant to Arizona law, if you are under the age of 21 and have any amount of alcohol in your system while driving (or in actual physical control of) a car, you are guilty of a “baby DUI.” Even a BAC (blood alcohol content) of 0.001 equals guilty under this law.
