The chief of the FAA (federal aviation admnistration) has resigned after being charged with dwi. http://news.yahoo.com/faa-chief-resigns-over-drunk-drive-charge-222124939.html
While many people know there are collateral consequences of a DWI conviction, such as also affecting a CDL (commercial driver's license), many people do not know that pilots can also face additional consequences for a dwi or chemical test refusal/test above the legal limit.
Remember, an arrest is not a conviction. If the State cannot prove your case you will remain not guilty.
