DNR Remove 10 From Boat For Being Drunk

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Natural Resources police say 10 people were removed from a boat in the Chesapeake Bay because officers feared no one was sober enough to operate the vessel.

The DNR police received a call about 9 p.m. Saturday at the Bay Bridge for a boat taking on water. The Capital of Annapolis reports that authorities said a 36-foot Sea Ray had struck a rock piling near the center span of the bridge, but was not taking on water.

Police say the operator and nine passengers appeared to be very intoxicated. They were taken to Sandy Point State Park.

Police say the operator, who was not identified, was charged with operating while intoxicated.
