Legal advocate and environmental activist Erin Brockovich-Ellis issued a public apology after her arrest for boating while intoxicated on Friday.

"At no time was the boat away from the dock and there was no public safety risk," she said in a statement released on Sunday. "That being said, I take drunk driving very seriously, this was clearly a big mistake. I know better and I am very sorry."

Brockovich-Ellis, 52, was approached by a game warden on Lake Mead near Las Vegas. He had observed her having trouble trying to dock her motor boat at the Las Vegas Boat Harbor, and he asked her to take a field sobriety test, which she failed. She was later booked into the Clark County Detention Center and released after posting $1,000 bail.
