Boating while intoxicated (BWI) is essentially the same as driving while intoxicated (DWI). Like a DWI, a BWI carries serious consequences: you can pay thousands of dollars in fines and spend months or even years in jail if found guilty. The only major difference between a BWI and a DWI is that game wardens or aquatic police officers can stop you in your boat without any reasonable suspicion or probable cause, so you’re at risk any time you decide to go out on the water.
In short, a BWI charge can change your life forever and cost you everything. That’s why it’s so important that you take action immediately when you’re accused of boating while intoxicated. You have rights, and you have options when it comes to fighting your BWI in Houston.
