    Friends of a military veteran who died after going overboard on a cruise are upset about the ship's delayed response.

    State officials will investigate whether alcohol laws were violated on a Boston Harbor cruise where a 21-year-old man fell overboard and died.

    The Boston Globe reports that the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission said Monday it will investigate. Kris Foster, general counsel of the agency, wouldn't provide details about the investigators, but said it generally looks for violations, like people being overserved.

    Aaron DiBella's body was found early Sunday, hours after he fell overboard from the Provincetown II ship during a party cruise.

    Friends of DiBella have been critical of the response aboard the ship.

    [NATL] White Official Tells Black Woman He Belonged to Master Race

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    "He could have easily been saved," Matt Almon told NBC10 Boston Monday.

    The company that owns the boat said Dibella had been "engaging in horseplay" before falling.

    Michael Glasfeld is the owner of the company. He says it hasn't had a liquor violation in more than 15 years and doesn't believe "the investigation into this tragic event will result in one either."
