A Pennsylvania man was charged with drunken driving after he hit a parked car with his trailered pontoon boat and then flipped the trailer and boat as he sped from police while dragging the upside down boat and trailer along the road near Millville.
Eric A. Willis, 40, of Avondale, was charged Sunday with DUI, reckless driving, resisting arrest and resisting arrest with violence, disregarding a police officer’s signal, leaving the scene of a property accident, driving at an unreasonable speed, driving on the wrong side of the highway and two counts of failure to signal intention, said state Fish & Wildlife Enforcement Sgt. Gregory Rhodes.
“When you get people who behave in an unreasonable way, that puts our officers and the public at risk,” Rhodes said. “Obviously, dragging a boat upside down on the roadway is a safety issue.”
