A boater was taken off of Wood Lake over the weekend after alcohol was found on board.
The B.C. Conservation Officer Service depicts a Zodiak-type boat with a large bottle of vodka, nearly empty, and several empty beer cans.
“On a weekend patrol of Wood Lake, Vernon CO’s encountered a vessel operator who they believed was impaired,” the BC Conservation Office said. “After further investigation, the individual was arrested and charged for operating a vessel in a careless manner without due care and attention.”
Like a motor vehicle, it is an offence to operate a vessel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
