The following could be considered an example of a PCP DUI arrest:

Antonio has recently fallen on hard times. He has lost his job and he is no longer able to provide for his family. One night, he decides to take a load off and try something that his friends are passing around. After a while, he blacks out. The next thing Antonio remembers is being at the hospital handcuffed to a bed. Antonio had gotten high on PCP, tried to drive, got into a car accident, and injured himself all during a self induced blackout. Antonio now faces felony DUI charges arising from driving while under the influence of PCP.

For other forms of drugs or substances that are penalized under California Vehicle Code 23152, visit the United States Controlled Substances Act.
