According to the Tennessee Wildlife resource agency , TWRA boating officers made 28 boating under the influence arrests during the period with almost one third (nine) coming from Old Hickory Lake. Kentucky Lake was a distant second with three arrests, with Watts Bar, Boone, Ft. Loudoun, and Watauga lakes all having two arrests each.
One key fact you need to know , refusal of a breath or blood alcohol test only effects your boating license not your Tennessee driver’s license. You can refuse a breath or blood alcohol test in a boating under the influence case.
Reminder, please obey the no wake zones around the marina’s.There might be someone watching. Hanging around Percy Priest’s Lake Elm Hill Marina at the end of the day is like Nashville’s DUI officers on West End Avenue.
