Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-391.2(A) requires the automatic seven-day suspension of the driver’s license of any person arrested for driving while intoxicated if the driver fails a breath test administered pursuant to Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-268.2, or any person who refuses to take a breath test as required by Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-268.3. When the driver either fails the breath test or refuses to take it, he or she is taken before a magistrate and a warrant is issued for the driver’s arrest. Upon issuance of the warrant, the magistrate automatically suspends the accused’s driving privilege for seven days pursuant to Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-391.2. Any person whose license or privilege to operate a motor vehicle has been suspended may, during the period of the suspension, request the general district court of the jurisdiction in which the arrest was made to review that suspension. Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-391.2(C).
