The highest charge that can be filed in county court is driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol. If you are caught operating a motor vehicle with a breath alcohol content (BrAC) of 0.08% or more - or with your faculties impaired by alcohol in any way, regardless of your BrAC level - you could face serious penalties including jail time, license suspension, and a criminal record.
The State of Florida is notorious for having some of the toughest DUI laws in the nation. For example, if you are under the age of 21 and are caught drinking and driving, the state has a "zero tolerance" policy. This subjects you to license suspension even if your BrAC was only 0.02%.
