Federal DUI

A DUI arrest in such areas as a national park or military base would therefore result in a federal DUI charge. As increased or additional penalties may apply, it is vital you defense against a charge for driving while intoxicated.

If the arrest took place in a national park, the case falls within the jurisdiction of the National Park Service.

Arrests that occur on other federal property are prosecuted and penalized per the guidelines of the State Superior Court.
