Can I Get Charged with a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) if I Wasn’t Even Driving?

To put it simply…yes, yes you can. There are three main elements in all DUI cases in Arizona: 1) Being under the influence of alcohol or drugs, while 2) driving or being in what’s called “actual physical control,” of 3) a motor vehicle. This guide addresses these details of each of these elements.
