24-year-old Jackson Vroon was jailed Sunday evening after police say he was carelessly operating a boat while intoxicated. While on Percy Priest Lake, TWRA Officer Joshua Landrum says Vroon’s boat came into his path of travel as Vroon was not keeping a proper lookout. He also immediately noticed the registration number was not displayed properly on the vessel. Upon stopping the boat, an alcoholic beverage was observed at the Vroon’s feet, and he reeked of alcohol. When asked to retrieve various safety equipment items, he was slow to move about the boat and admitted to consuming “a couple of beers.” He then performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was charged with boating under the influence (BUI).
