I think your budy stands a good chance of beating this espically if there were other people on board that were capable of driving even if they were over the age of 14 as long as they have a valid Oklahoma boaters license. Just because he's a cop doesn't mean he's right. This might help

I'm not sure if this is true or not because I have never put it to the test..BUT..as a FYI... A lawyer friend of mine told me that if I ever got pulled over and was asked to take a breathalizer test I should say these words "I will take this test in the presence of my Lawyer". Obviosly by the time your lawyer gets to the station your b.a.l. will have gotten much better.. I know this won't rectify the problem on the water...especially getting "removed" from the boat but it may help in the long run.

It's Kind of ironic that your having this issues with marine patrol. NY just cut funding for marine patrols all over the state. I was talking to my local Sheriff the other day. He informed me they might not even put the marine patrol boat in the water this year. It's kind of good but could also be kind of bad especially if somebody gets into a jam.

Boy this new OK law is bull. I can't believe they could even do that. We need to stop this from happening in other states.

Take note fellows, this is the way it happens. complacentcy of the population is how they have gotten this far. Oh and by the way the former president,leader or principal of MADD was arrested for DUI in Gainesville,Fla in may or april of this year.

BUMMER!

Let me get this right... LEO can pull you over (underway) and give the person sitting in the back seat a BUI?

OR If everyone onboard (anchored) points at one person who is sober and is the "captain," LEO can still take anyone in for BUI?

I know of a few people who keep the the local LEO in business as it is!!!

Does anyone have a link to this law in writing?

Yep, you and your buddies go out to a local restaurant, they have a few cocktails, you agree to be the "designated driver" get pulled over on the way home, you pass the test, but your buddies all fail and get hauled away, that is what this is saying. Comprende?

Im all about drinking and love doing it, but me personally if it were up to me the DRIVE and driver only of a car, boat, motorcycle, etc would be ZERO tolerance. No drinks at all. Personally I think well see that somebody due to all the idiots and the BS and confusion that goes along with it. Be alot easier knowing you cant drink at all vs can I have one or three
I agree, However, if I read it correctly, it doesn't matter if the boat is moving or anchored for the night..or for that matter parked at a dock. If your on the boat and your drinking you could get a BUI ticket......which is a load of $hit IMO.
