Can a person be guilty of drunk driving in Florida if they only had one drink?

Drinking small amounts of alcohol can still result in DUIs in the wrong situation. Now it does have to a degree be a perfect storm to be cited for drunk driving. If the individual is very small, if they have not a lot of weight, the size of someone directly correlates with their ability to metabolize alcohol. So in a drunk driving situation where someone weighs 90 pounds it’s much easier to get drunk and either have your normal faculties impaired or be over the legal limit based on one drink. With that said it would probably have to be a pretty strong drink.
