This statute, known as the Assimilative Crimes Act, provides that acts committed on federal lands or properties that are not specifically addressed by federal law can be prosecuted under the state laws where the land is located. If a person commits intoxication assault on federal property, such as a national park or military base, and there is no specific federal law covering the offense, the state's intoxication assault law can be applied.
Involuntary manslaughter, under federal law, is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice. It is committed in the commission of an unlawful act not amounting to a felony, or in the commission of a lawful act which might produce death, in an unlawful manner. If an intoxicated person causes an accident that results in death rather than serious bodily injury, they could be charged under this statute.
This statute criminalizes the attempt to commit murder or manslaughter. If an intoxicated person causes serious bodily injury with a motor vehicle, and the circumstances are such that it could be seen as an attempt to commit manslaughter, they could potentially be charged under this statute.
This statute provides for the development and implementation of highway safety programs by the Secretary of Transportation. While it does not directly address criminal behavior, it does mandate that states create and enforce highway safety programs that comply with federal standards. These programs often include provisions related to DUI/DWI offenses and could indirectly impact how states deal with intoxication assault.
The National Driver Register (NDR) is a database of information about drivers who have had their licenses revoked or suspended, or who have been convicted of serious traffic-related offenses. If someone is convicted of intoxication assault, their information would likely be included in this register, which could impact their ability to drive in any state.
