Imagine that you and your friends are out on a beautiful, sunny weekend. You are driving a boat and having drinks in celebration. Or perhaps it is more conservative fare: maybe you're out with your family and relatives celebrating some special family events or occasion. Nevertheless, there is alcohol aboard and you have had a few drinks.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, you hear a siren blaring behind your vessel and you are pulled over by a police boat, who eventually determines that you have been "boating under the influence." Whatever the exact circumstance may be, you must speak with an West Covina BUI defense attorneys from Coimbra Law Firm right away.
Police officers monitor boating activity for BUIs in popular recreational aquatic areas and feverishly seek out those suspected of boating under the influence. A few common recreational destination spots include Laguna Niguel, Newport Beach, Lake Havasu, Pyramid Lake, Colorado River, Lake Castaic, Lake Tahoe, Big Bear, and Arrowhead.
At our firm, we know that people come out to these scenic recreational destinations to celebrate summer and spring holidays. Unfortunately, this draws a strong police presence that may oftentimes get out of hand, resulting in some wrongful arrests.
Similar to DUI, a BUI charge is frequently levied against innocent boaters who have been wrongfully cited and arrested for this crime, giving our West Covina boating under the influence attorneys an opportunity to effectively combat BUI charges. Our award-winning trial lawyers have successfully disposed of tens of thousands of criminal charges throughout California, including BUI cases.
