What should I do if I have been charged with BUI?
First off, boating under the influence is a much different charge than driving under the influence. The reason is, is because you’re out on the water, and when you’re out on the water your balance is already different than what your balance would be on the ground. The police, when they through their investigation, they’re supposed to use different field sobriety testing to determine whether or not your faculties are impaired. But, a lot of times the police don’t do that because the police aren’t trained in these alternative field sobriety exercises. That’s why it’s so important to contact an experienced DUI and boating under the influence defense attorney because we know the difference and we know what the police are supposed to do and what the police fail to do in a lot of investigations.
