So, you were out on the lake with family 

and friends having fun. 


Maybe you had a couple of beers while the kids swam, you & your significant other fished, and your friends partied. 


Who doesn't want to cut loose to celebrate summer? 


All in all, you wanted to relax and have a few beers with the people you love the most.  


The party ended abruptly when you were arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
