Boating While Intoxicated (BWI) Charges

While aboard a water vessel, you are allowed to consume alcohol in the State of Missouri. If you are driving or operating that vessel, however, you could be charged with boating while intoxicated. These charges are similar to driving while intoxicated charges.

A BWI is a class B misdemeanor, meaning you can be issued a $500 fine in addition to facing possible jail time.

The following may apply to your case:

  • First Offense: Mandatory boat safety course
  • Second Offense: Up to a $1,000 fine & one year in prison
  • Third Offense: Up to a $5,000 fine & up to 4 years in prison

In addition, you could lose your driver's license and be subject to additional probation or community service. To learn more about Boating While Intoxicated and the potential penalties associated with the charge, visit our BWI page or call us at 314-621-0622 for a FREE consultation.
