Intoxication assault occurs when you accidentally cause serious bodily injury to another person, either while committing the act of boating while intoxicated (BWI), flying while intoxicated (FWI), or operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated in a public place (DWI). Serious bodily injury can be an injury that creates substantial risk of death or that causes serious permanent disfigurement or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ.
