If you are found guilty of DUI (Driving Under the Influence) in Arizona you will go to jail. Even if no one was hurt or killed, or you didn't even hit another car or damage anything at all. It is mandatory that you spend a minimum of 24 hours in jail, even for your first offense. In addition to 24 hours in jail, you will have to pay fines and fees. Many people don't consider the financial penalties, but in many cases the expenses can be more of a hardship than the 24 hours in jail.
