Md. man arrested for drunk boating
An Ocean City, Md., man has been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and operating a vessel while under the influence of alcohol, Maryland Natural Resources police (NRP) said.
Nicholas S. Basle, 20, was also charged with underage possession of alcohol and littering on state waters. NRP officers arrested him Tuesday.
NRP said officers were called to a canal off Bayshore Drive in Ocean City for a complaint of disorderly boaters throwing beer cans and yelling profanities at people along the canal. When they arrived, they found Basle on shore. He was agitated and cursing at Ocean City police officers, NRP said.
NRP said Basle allegedly was operating a vessel and throwing beer cans at vessels that were docked along the canal. He then got off his vessel and allegedly began yelling profanities at people along the canal. Basle was with two other people who fled before police arrived.
NRP officials said Basle failed two field sobriety tests.
