The operator of a 35-foot sailboat has been charged with drunken boating after his vessel allegedly struck a moored boat near Portland Harbor in Maine.
The U.S. Coast Guard said in a statement that on Sunday it received notification of the contact between vessels from a Casco Bay Lines employee.
A crew from Coast Guard Station South Portland immediately responded and boarded the vessel. Portland police also arrived and conducted a field sobriety test. Tests determined the operator was impaired and was arrested for boating under the influence.
No one was board the 50-foot vessel that was struck.
The Coast Guard did not release a name.
