Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • In the event the prosecution adduces evidence of a particular blood alcohol level to establish that an appellant was intoxicated and driving recklessly, the presumptions found in Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-269 become relevant. Therefore, a jury instruction regarding the statutory presumptions of impairment at various levels should be granted to the party requesting it.
