They proceeded to Gloucester Point boat ramp where local lawmen placed the man under arrest for BUI and and obstructing justice.

"Alot of people think boating under the Influence isn't taken seriously, but it is treated just like a DUI," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Damian Brown, the boarding officer from the Station Milford-Haven boat crew. "They need to observe the legal drinking limit while underway and should watch how much they drink regardless of whether or not they think they will be caught."
