Erin Brockovich Rocks the Boat

Erin Brockovich, known for her environmental activism and role in a $333 million-dollar lawsuit, was arrested last Friday for boating while intoxicated.

Background

Brockovich helped build a winning class-action case against Pacific Gas and Electric Company. She has also been involved in environmental activism over the years. Julia Roberts made her name famous by playing her character in the 2000 film Erin Brockovich. The film subsequently received numerous awards.

The Incident

On June 7, the Nevada Department of Wildlife said Brockovich “exhibited several signs of an intoxicated boater” while she was trying to dock her boat. She reportedly took a breathalyzer test and blew twice the legal limit of .08%. Police also said she slapped her husband, threw a cell phone into the water and admitted she wasn’t “very good at  driving [the boat].” She was released from jail after posting $1000 bail. For having such an extensive legal background, shouldn’t Brockovich know that driving a boat while intoxicated is against the law?

“I am very sorry.”

She released a statement saying, “I apologize for my actions Friday evening. After a day in the sun and with nothing to eat it appears that a couple of drinks had a greater impact than I had realized. It is very important to note that I was not operating the boat in open waters, I was moving it within its own slip. At no time was the boat away from the dock and there was no public safety risk. That being said, I take drunk driving very seriously, this was clearly a big mistake, I know better and I am very sorry.”

We hope she learns from this mistake and are glad that nobody else was hurt, except for maybe her husband. Remember, DWIs aren’t just for diving cars. Drinking and boating do not go hand-in-hand, so designate a driver if you choose to consume alcohol while on the lake, river or ocean. If you are struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, ARCpoint Labs can help you get back on track.

    Operating any sort of machinery is a bad idea when you’ve been drinking.
