Holdings:

            The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • Driving under the influence per se is not a lesser included offense of driving under the influence. It is a separate offense, as both driving under the influence and driving under the influence per se each have an element not found in the other. The criminal per se law is intended to supplement the existing prohibitions.
  • Driving "under the influence" is the more serious of the driving under the influence of alcohol and driving while impaired and requires that the alcohol that the person has consumed has substantially impaired the person's normal coordination. By contrast, driving "while impaired" requires that the alcohol that the person has consumed has impaired normal coordination to some extent. Driving under the influence of alcohol per se requires that the person take a test that shows the blood alcohol level to be 0.08 or more.
