what if was on a log? Natural piece of wood, I don't get this, other than he could have drown, can't see him harming anyone like a motorized vehicle or boat could, ok, lets take it one step farther, what if he was in a taxi on a raft?

even if you can't get a dui, they could probably get you for public intoxication or something else though.
i got pulled over on my bicycle one time, while on a sidewalk.
the cop pulled right up on the sidewalk in front of me and that's what he threatened to give me after I told him i was riding my bike as I thought it was more responsible than driving. all ended up well with me that night thankfully, but lesson learned.

There might be good reason for it. I spent a couple of weeks in Fairbanks several years ago. Some of the rivers in the area, are narrow and winding with shallow points. Many people up there run jet-boats that can FLY up these rivers. A drunk floating on a tube has no chance against a boat cruising 30mph+... Other rivers up there are wide but have strong currents that a sober person couldn't swim in.

I've seen similar things done on one of those Alaska State Trooper shows (or similar) on Nat Geo, where they had a line of troopers standing in a river checking on people in a river race. They were handing out DUI tickets there...

So let's screw up their life so they don't screw up their life.
