bwi--not the airport.

(Joshua Masayoshi Huff)

bsto and I were interested in Cedric Benson getting arrested for allegedly boating under the influence and resisting arrest.

I understand the resisting arrest charge--but boating while intoxicated? I am vehemently against operating heavy machinery while inebriated, however, I know what goes on at places like Martha's Vineyard and at private beaches and lakes across the country:

Drunken boating.

Not to be ridiculous, but why is Benson singled out? Are there a lot of drunk boating arrests yearly, or is this something that one gets charged with? We firmly feel that further investigation into just why Mr. Benson was arrested needs to be done
