    Police in Rhode Island say a man has been charged with boating while intoxicated after his vessel ran up onto a sandbar at a Warwick beach.

    Capt. Lori Michailides says police and officers from the state Department of Environmental Management responded to a report of a boat lodged in sand at Conimicut Point on Friday.

    Authorities say 46-year-old Shawn Kiernan, of Cranston, was taken to Kent Hospital with minor injuries and released with a summons to appear in court on a charge of boating while intoxicated.

    It couldn't be determined Saturday if Kiernan is being represented by an attorney.
