North Carolina man refuses breath test at drunk driving arrest

A 52-year-old man from Charlotte, North Carolina, refused a breath test as well as a blood or urine test when he was arrested for allegedly driving drunk on St. Patrick's Day. Rock Hill police confronted him after he crashed his girlfriend's 2005 Volvo into a metal post protecting a gas pump at a Rock Hill gas station.

DWI penalties in North Carolina

The penalties for drunk driving in North Carolina can be severe, and even first-time offenders may be sentenced to jail time. North Carolina has seized the vehicles of over 8,000 motorists convicted of DWI since harsher sanctions were introduced in 1998. A driver is considered intoxicated in the state when they have a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or higher, but this limit drops to .04 percent for those with a commercial driver's license.

Law enforcement actions result in thousands of DUI arrests

North Carolina law enforcement officers arrested 3,164 individuals for supposedly driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs from the period of Dec. 13 to Jan. 5. Wake County had the most DWI arrests with Mecklenburg County coming in second.
