Washington County Man Facing Charges For Reckless Boating Incident

A Washington County Sheriff’s deputy arrested a 33-year-old Village of Richfield man Sunday morning for a reckless boating incident on an area lake. The man violated a no wake rule and struck a swim raft with his boat. He was eventually caught after he fled to his home on the south side of the lake. The deputy found items in the man’s boat that violated his probation on an OWI charge. The man is now four boating citations, and charges for disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and for the probation hold.
