A: If I understand your question, I think you are asking if Arizona can suspend the driving privileges of a person who never had an Arizona license. if the charge is for driving in Arizona, clearly the answer is yes. Arizona can not suspend the person's Wisconsin license. That is up to Wisconsin to do, although Wisconsin very well MAY do it based on the Arizona conviction. However, if you get arrested for DUI (or any other traffic offense) in Arizona, the State of Arizona can clearly suspend your privilege to drive a car IN ARIZONA.
