What is the difference between a DUI and APC?
DUI stands for 'Driving Under The Influence' of alcohol or drugs. APC stands for 'Actual Physical Control' of a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. While both crimes are similar, one doesn't require the person to be driving. APC charges are often filed on people who have pulled over to the side of the road to sleep off their intoxication. While that is certainly safer than driving, it is still prosecuted similarly.
DUI and APC arrest often result in civil action taking against the driver's license. Those arrested will likely be released with a temporary license and directed to follow up with the Department of Public Safety..
