The news is reporting that 71 people were arrested for Boating Under the Influence this last weekend at Sea-Fair. Check out the full story at: http://www.komonews.com/news/local/127228228.html
Every year, there is a major crack down of these types of cases. As an experienced BUI (Boating Under the Influence) Defense Lawyer I have seen that many times in these cases, the “field sobriety tests” conducted are done on a boat that is tossing and turning in the water. Balance tests at this time are crazy. Often, the officers rely on portable breath tests that are inadmissible in trial. That said, the consequences can be quite severe, and those charged must proceed with caution and good legal counsel.
