81-year-old Daniel Neyrete was on a boat with a child under the age of twelve and told police that he had been drinking. MNPD officers were patrolling J.

When they spoke to Daniel, they said he smelled strongly of alcohol, and he admitted to drinking. Daniel performed sobriety tests on the officer’s vessel and showed several indicators of intoxication. He refused to give a blood sample and was arrested for boating under the influence.
