Under California Vehicle Code section 23152(a) it is against the law for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug to drive a vehicle. Furthermore, California Vehicle Code section 23152(b) makes it unlawful for a person who has 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle. Mr. Kennedy will likely be charged with a violation of both Vehicle Code sections 23152(a) and 23152(b).
