FROM STAFF REPORTS
MARBLE FALLS — A 41-year-old man was arrested after a boating accident July 4 that seriously injured a Marble Falls police captain.
James Henry “Hank” Fry of Marble Falls was charged with intoxication assault causing serious bodily injury, which is a third-degree felony.
According to a news release from the Marble Falls Police Department, Fry was driving a bass boat that struck a marked Marble Falls Police Department patrol boat and Capt. Ted Young, who was assigned boat patrol duty during the annual fireworks show on Lake Marble Falls. The incident occurred about 10 p.m.
Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens arrested Fry.
Because a member of the Marble Falls Police Department was involved, officials contacted the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to conduct the investigation, according to the release.
The charge can be enhanced to a second-degree felony at trial since Young was performing the duties of a peace officer when struck.
Fry was released July 5 after posting a $75,000 bond.
