Boating DUI Queen Creek

ARS 5-395 makes it illegal for a person to operate a motorized watercraft while under the influence of alcohol or certain drugs (without a valid prescription). A person is considered to be under the influence of alcohol if they have an alcohol level of .08 or more.

The law also makes it a crime for a person to refuse to submit to a blood or urine test after a reasonable request by police.


Controlling or operating a motorized watercraft while under the influence is deemed as a class 1 misdemeanor offense. A blood alcohol level of 0.05 and higher is enough for a court of law to recognize you as being under the influence.
If you are charged with a class 1 misdemeanor, you may face a fine of up to $2,500, or, in more severe cases, face up to 6 months in jail, to be served in its entirety before release.
