Game Wardens will be on the water for the Holiday

ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Local game wardens said you should know the legal level of intoxication on a lake is the same as on a highway, and the punishment for a Boating While Intoxicated is the same for a Driving While Intoxicated.

They said the public has a pretty good chance of running into a game warden this weekend.

"To the best of my knowledge, every game warden that we've got in the region is going to work this weekend and going to be on the water somewhere," said Angelina County Game Warden James Barge.

Barge said you should get a designated driver and make sure everyone has a wearable life jacket. Also, remember to display your running lights after legal sunset.
