Description

Transfer of custody of person suspected of drunk boating.  Reinstates language allowing for transfer of custody of a person arrested for drunk boating. The language was removed, during the 2010 session in Chapter 840, from the statute providing for warrantless arrests and replaced with broader language applicable to arrests for both DUI and drunk boating that allows for an arrest in any location whether or not the offense was committed in the officers presence.
