An Alaskan man faces a DUI charge for allegedly having a 0.313 breath-alcohol content as he floated through Fairbanks on an inflatable raft.
Alaska’s DUI law applies to people not only operating motor vehicles, but watercrafts and airplanes as well.
When Alaska State Troopers received a report of a “heavily intoxicated” man floating down a local river, they responded and arrested 32-year-old William Modene.
“Modene had been floating on the river for the day and consuming alcoholic beverages the entire time,” troopers wrote in their “daily dispatches” log on their website.
At 0.313, Modene’s breath-alcohol content was nearly four times the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle.
Modene was arrested on Sunday but managed to post a $2,500 bail the following day.
