OVI is defined as operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of greater than 0.08 if you are age 21 or older. If you are arrested with a BAC of greater than 0.08 but under 0.17, you could spend three days in jail or be ordered into a driver intervention program, be fined up to $1,075 and have your license suspended up to 3 years.
