The commission may deprive any pilot of his or her branch for a willful violation of his or her duties, or the orders or rules of the commission, or for negligently losing or injuring any vessel in his or her charge;  or when laboring under mental derangement or when so addicted to habits of intoxication as to be unfit to be entrusted with the charge of a vessel. Any bar pilot who fails to act as such for three months, or absents himself or herself for 10 days at any one time from the Bay or Harbor of Mobile without leave of the commissioners, may be deprived of his or her branch. If, while a vessel in the Bay or Harbor of Mobile is in the charge of any civil officer by virtue of process from any court of record in this state, any bar pilot, with knowledge thereof, conducts or bar pilots the vessel out of the bay or harbor, he or she forfeits his or her branch, and is forever disqualified from acting as a bar pilot, and forfeits a sum of money as the jury may assess.
