Columbus Day Weekend Brings Heavy Police Presence

This weekend is a holiday weekend. Columbus Day falls on Monday, and Miami Beach will be packed with beachgoers for the famous Columbus Day Regatta.

However, Coast Guard, Miami Beach, and Miami-Dade Police will be out in full force, specifically looking for intoxicated boaters.

Drinking on a boat can result in the issuance of a PTA (promise to appear), which is a criminal citation.

More seriously, BUI (boating under the influence) will result in the boat operator being taken into custody.

If you are arrested or issued a PTA during this Columbus Day Weekend in Miami or Broward and are in need of a criminal defense attorney with whom to discuss your case, please call me.
