Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266(ii) prohibits driving while such person is under the influence of alcohol. That degree of intoxication, or being “under the influence of alcohol,” is established when any person has consumed enough alcoholic beverages to so affect his manner, disposition, speech, muscular movement, general appearance or behavior, as to be apparent to observation.
