Can I Get a DUI the Next Morning?

Yes. Although not as frequent in numbers, it is not uncommon for a DUI arrest the morning after a hard night of drinking. The laws in Kentucky and Ohio are the same, the blood alcohol level over .08 is sufficient to convict for DUI (OVI in Ohio). It does not matter if the .08 is a left over from the night before. The human body processes the alcohol at a different rate. This metabolism varies by age, weight, sex as well as by each individual. An average for a 160 pound male is that they metabolize 1 drink/hour. Women do not metabolize alcohol as fast as men. If you are a female and drink 10 drinks in a night, you may still exceed the legal limit if you drive 6 hours later, which may be the next morning. One major reason for less DUI arrests in the morning is that police are not nearly as vigilent in the morning. If you are driving at 2:00 a.m., the police are looking for drunk drivers. They generally are not looking at 6:30 a.m. Most of those arrests follow an accident or other reason for the police to investigate. If you have been arrested for DUI, contact an attorney.
