Erin Brockovich, who was portrayed by Julia Roberts in the movie “Erin Brockovich” and is famous for suing Pacific Gas and Electric for polluting water, was charged with DUI while trying to dock her boat late one night at Lake Mead near Las Vegas: Erin Brockovich Charged DUI
When people think about being charged with a DUI, they usually think about driving cars or other road vehicles. They do not consider the ramifications of operating their watercraft’s at the lake. The DUI Defense Team would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that, in the State of Kansas, operating or attempting to operate a boat while under the influence of alcohol or drugs carries the same consequences as operating or attempting to operate a car while under the influence.
When you head to the lake to enjoy the summer sun, please remember to be safe. If you do happen to get into trouble and are charged with DUI and/or related charges, you need an attorney who understands both the criminal and administrative implications of those charges.
