How DUI is Defined in The State Of Mississippi
DUI in Mississippi is defined in a couple of different ways. You have what is known as a common law DUI, which means the officer thinks that you are impaired and operating a motor vehicle on the highways of the state of Mississippi. And that is where a lot of your field sobriety tests and things like that come in. However, there’s also the statutory version and that’s the 0.08 blood alcohol content that everybody knows about. If you have a 0.08 or higher than you’re considered impaired by the statute.
