What’s the difference between a felony and misdemeanor?

What if you just got pulled over for a suspected DUI? The police officer says he thinks you were driving while impaired. He gives you a field sobriety test and requests that you take a breathalyzer test as well. In all 50 states the test has been set at .08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) as the legal limit for driving under the influence or driving while impaired (DWI). The amount is even less if you are a commercial driver, it is .04% (BAC). For those under 21, do not even think about driving while intoxicated. There is a zero tolerance when it comes to you. So, is this DUI or DWI a felony or a misdemeanor and what is the difference?
