Operating a Watercraft Under the Influence Archives

Former Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Charged With BUI

Kevin Kolb, a NFL quarterback that once played for the Philadelphia Eagles, recently discovered the hard way that drinking and boating can lead to boating under the influence or BUI charges. Many people like to boat or ride a skidoo for fun and relaxation, and when people relax, they often like to enjoy a few adult beverages. The problem is that it is just as illegal to operate a watercraft under  the influence as it is to drive drunk, and the penalties for BUI cases are very similar to the penalties for DUI convictions.
