For All The People Who Like To Drink While Rafting Or Tubing
This is news to me, but I guess you can get a DUI for floating drunk on an inflatable raft in Alaska. Now, when ever I say goodbye on my show, I remind everyone… “Don’t drink and drive.” I do not have a clue about drinking and floating though.
On Sunday night, while on a raft floating down a river in Fairbanks, Alaska, William Modene of Juneau was enjoying a drink… or eight. Modene blew a .313 in the breathalyzer, which is about four times the legal limit of .08 in the state of Alaska. Reports have show that it starts getting dangerous and maybe even lethal at around .40.
Some may wonder how you can get arrested for a DUI when you are not driving. Newsminer.com says that under Alaskan law, you can get a DUI for, quote, “navigating a vessel used or capable of being used as a means of transportation” in the water.
