The punishment depends on where you live, but rest assured it is a very severe offence in any country/state. In TN the first is either 24 or 48 hours in jail, second is 7 days I think, the third is 150 days in jail and any higher is a felony. The fines are very high and you lose your license for 1 year min, also if you took a alcohol test (either blood or breath) and it was higher than .20 then its manditory 7 days in jail.
