BWI Defense Lawyer in Sugar Land and Fort Bend County, Texas
Boating while intoxicated (BWI) is almost identical to driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Texas. The major difference between BWI and DWI is how officers conduct the stop. Texas law does not require a game warden or aquatic police officer to have any articulate or specific reasonable suspicion or probable cause to stop a boat while operating on Texas waters; however, an officer must have specific and articulate reasonable suspicion AND probable cause to stop a vehicle. If you’ve been arrested for boating while intoxicated (BWI) in the Fort Bend County area or Harris County area, you need to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney regarding your case. Enlist the aid of a qualified Fort Bend DWI attorney or Harris DWI attorney immediately.
