I absolutely agree with Wayne. Furthermore, BUIs are typically weaker cases than a typical DUI on land. Not always, but in my experience I would much rather defend a BUI than a DUI if given a choice before a jury.
I would agree with the other two attorneys' answers. This is a serious offense, just as serious as a DUI with a vehicle. It does sound, however, that you have some issues that can be leveraged. Was the investigating police agency the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office? You are going to need a lawyer one way or another (either appointed or retained). It also sounds like you have some other independent witnesses that may help your case. What court is this out of? All these things have impact on the strength of your case. If you would like to talk further, please call my office for a consultation.
