    They were arrested for DUI: DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE. Too many inebriated people get behind the wheel thinking they may be tipsy but not drunk. They think they are OK to drive and only drunk people get arrested until they find out they can and will be arrested for DUI. A proper headline conveys that if you drink and drive, even if you don’t feel inebriated, you may be under the influence. You don’t even have to blow an 0.08 to be arrested and found guilty. DON"T DRINK AND DRIVE.
