Nain Boater Arrested for Impaired Operation of a Boat

At approximately 9:00 a.m. on July 10, 2018, Nain RCMP responded to a report of a boating accident at the Nain wharf.

A female passenger sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

A 35-year-old man from Nain was arrested and is facing charges of impaired operation of a vessel causing bodily harm.

He has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in Nain Provincial Court on September 5, 2018.

Nain RCMP reminds boaters that driving impaired on the water is the same offence as driving a car impaired and has the same consequences.
