A Military DUI Can Have Substantial Consequences
If you were driving on-post and stopped by the MPs on suspicion of impaired driving, you may face both on-post and off-post consequences for a conviction. A drunk driving offense is one of many Army enlistment disqualifications that will require a waiver for those considering joining the military and can be a career ender for those currently serving in the armed forces.
At Roberts Law Group, PLLC, in Wilmington, our founding attorney, Patrick Roberts, was an Assistant District Attorney in New Hanover County; he now puts his knowledge to work for those charged of a misdemeanor or felony in North Carolina.

What To Expect After An On-Post DWI At Fort Bragg
It is against the law to drive while impaired by drugs or alcohol, whether you are on-post or off-post. If you are caught drunk driving on post you may face discipline through a military courts-martial under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) or an Article 15 non-judicial punishment (NJP). Either way, you may lose:
- The ability to make rank
- Liberty privileges
- Driving privileges, on and off post
Whether you will lose your particular job depends on how your Command handles a DWI on a military base. For those in the Army stationed at Fort Bragg, on temporary duty at Fort Bragg or going through training at the Fayetteville military post, an experienced DWI defense attorney may be the difference between advancing in the Army after a drunk-driving arrest and ending your military career with a dishonorable discharge.
