Boating DUI Lawyers in Phoenix

Arrested for boating while drunk?

The state of Arizona is very strict when it comes to matters of DUI. A number of people know about the various laws regarding drinking and driving, but surprisingly, not many are aware of the harsh penalties associated with a boating DUI. Known in some areas as an OUI, this charge is designed to keep people safe on the various lakes, waterways, and rivers in Arizona. This includes the operation of jet skis, boats, or any other watercraft.

As with any DUI, operating a boat with a blood alcohol content level of .08% is illegal. If you are arrested with a BAC between 0.08% and 0.15%, it may be considered a misdemeanor DUI and you may face mandatory jail time. At MayesTelles PLLC, some of our Phoenix boating DUI attorneys are former prosecutors. We know how to defend our clients from the harsh consequences of a boating DUI charge.

A super-extreme DUI charge (0.20% BAC or higher) may come with even harsher penalties, such as:

The Seriousness of an Arrest

If you are arrested for a boating DUI, it can cause a number of issues in your life and limit your abilities to not only operate a watercraft, but also drive a vehicle. It is important that you take these matters seriously. Subsequent arrests result in longer, more severe penalties. If you are arrested, make sure you take the necessary steps to retain legal counsel.

In order to charge you with a boating DUI, law enforcement officials must prove that you had a blood alcohol content level above 0.08%. This done through the use of breathalyzers. It is important to know that these are not always accurate and can have some calibration issues that cause an individual to blow a number higher than what is correct.

Our team recognizes these issues and can develop a case on your behalf.
