The Mercury News has picked up the story. "Federal charges pending." Good.
MONTEREY — The captain of a commercial fishing vessel was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after crashing his 30-foot boat into the rock jetty at the U.S. Coast Guard Station Monterey Saturday evening.
The unidentified captain was detained by Coast Guard personnel who witnessed the crash and then turned him over to Monterey police who made the arrest and processed the suspect, both police and the Coast Guard said.
A request for a report was not made available by Monterey police on Tuesday.
Lt. Shane Gunderson with Coast Guard Station Monterey said personnel witnessed the crash at 8 p.m. Saturday and military law enforcement detained the suspect before turning him over to police.
Gunderson described the vessel as a 30-foot squid boat with only one person aboard that crashed into the seaward side of the jetty. There were no serious injuries to the captain, he said, and the vessel was able to clear itself from the rocks and return to the harbor under its own power.
Gunderson said he could provide no further details since there are federal charges pending and the investigation is ongoing.
