What is an Aggravated DWI?

An Aggravated DWI in Bentonville occurs when an individual is arrested for driving under the influence with aggravating factors that intensify the severity of the offense. These factors may include:

  • Presence of Minors: Having children in the vehicle at the time of the arrest can elevate the offense.
  • Refusal to Submit to Testing: Refusing to undergo a breathalyzer or chemical test can lead to aggravated charges.
  • Reckless Driving: Combining DWI with reckless driving behavior can result in Aggravated DWI charges.

Navigating through the intricacies of Aggravated DWI charges requires a legal team with experience and a deep understanding of Arkansas laws, and that's where Nelson & Marks PLLC comes in.
