Did You Refuse to Take the Breathalyzer?
Tennessee has an implied consent law. This means when you signed for your driver’s license, you agreed to submit to a Breathalyzer test or blood test if law enforcement had probable cause to believe you were boating under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Refusing a Breathalyzer test can result in your boating license suspension.
