BUI - Boating Under the Influence - Recipe for Arrest

You really know the season has started when you get your first BUI tow of the year - 
YuP, you take one of the first 1/2 way good Saturdays, hit the marina bar, add about 10 of your friends, Drink hearty!  Pour into your  38 ft Wellcraft Cruiser, cast off - - - Add 1 Water Patrolman who has stopped you for an unrelated reason, stagger from the helm of your vessel and begin shooting mouth off,  Add another Water Patrolman,  Add one more for good measure - - and just to prove you haven't been drinking, shake your finger, shoot your mouth off some more and PRESTO - - you're invited aboard the patrol boat with the help of three officers and get to blow in the little gizmo and  - YOU GET A BUI -- - duhhhh.  Oh yeah, as the operator is cuffed, placed in PFD and is departing, one of his "buds" suddenly becomes a "Sea Lawyer" (after all he just passed the bar exam)  - - He begins shouting big words at the patrolmen like - "lawsuit" he also takes a shot at their mother, then shows his grasp of a large vocabulary of expletive's deleted and  - - -YEAH - YOU GUESSED IT, HE TOO GETS TO GO ON A FREE PATROL BOAT RIDE WITH COMPLIMENTARY JEWELRY (Shiny Bracelets) AND A VERY BIG GERMAN SHEPARD - -
