      • Jail: 45 days (some people may be home detention eligible (after 3 days in custody)).
      • Fines: About $3,240, plus jail/home detention costs and $80 monitoring fee.
      • Screening and counseling required: Yes.
      • Driver's license suspension: 90-day suspension (with a potential 60-day restricted driving period for Arizona license holders after 30 days) or 1-year revocation (with a potential restricted driving period after 90 days upon installation of an ignition interlock device ).
