Law Enforcement Officers Looking For Drunken Boater

St. Paul (AP)

Law enforcement officers say they’ll be out on Minnesota waterways this July Fourth weekend to catch boaters who are driving drunk.

It’s illegal to operate a boat with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher, the same as driving a vehicle. Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Adam Block says law enforcement will be looking for reckless driving, slow or no wake violators and those not properly using floatation devices.

The crackdown is part of a three-day, nationwide campaign called “Operation Dry Water.”

Block says boaters caught driving drunk could lose their boats and driving privileges.
