Man arrested for operating under the influence on his boat

Drunk driving charges in Nashville and throughout Tennessee are often viewed as related to driving a car, but they can involve other vehicles as well. Operating a boat under the influence can also lead to charges and those who are confronted by them must be aware of their consequences and lodge a defense. Frequently, drunk driving charges of any vehicle will lead to other offenses unrelated to the initial investigation. This makes it even more essential to have legal assistance from someone experienced in multiple aspects of the law.

A man who works as a treatment provider for offenders in Nashville found himself under arrest for several charges related to operating under the influence and other violations. The man, 46, was alleged to have been operating a boat under the influence of marijuana and for exposing himself. The company he works for helps those who have been arrested. It provides help for substance abuse, domestic abuse and anger management. The man stated that the arrest was unwarranted because he jumped into the lake without clothes and he was under the impression that was allowed.

After his arrest, the company's services are no longer being used by the state. The arresting officer stated that there was a call that the man was drinking alcohol, exposing himself, behaving strangely and yelling. The man was arrested for boating under the influence, public indecency, simple possession and possessing drug paraphernalia. He asserts that the drugs and empty beer bottles were not his and were left by friends who had used the vessel.

There are several problems this man faces with this boating under the influence and the other allegations. His job is to work with people who need counseling and his work has been put on hold after the arrest. This is in addition to the potential penalties he faces if he is convicted. Having a qualified attorney can make the difference. That is the first call that he needs to make to prepare for a defense.
