Extreme and Super Extreme DUI
In the state of Arizona, all DUIs are aggressively prosecuted. Extreme and Super Extreme DUIs, however, are more serious offenses and carry much stiffer penalties for those who are convicted. If a driver is found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .15 or higher, they could be charged with what is known as an Extreme DUI.
