LEXINGTON, N.C. (AP) — A Davidson County commissioner has been accused of driving a motorboat while impaired and failure to cooperate with police.
The Dispatch of Lexington reported (http://bit.ly/JlLEjT ) that 47-year-old Todd Yates was stopped by an officer with the Wildlife Resources Commission who saw his boat speeding in a no-wake zone of High Rock Lake.
Sgt. Anthony Sharum with the wildlife commission says the officer attempted to do a safety inspection Saturday and Yates was not cooperative. Sharum says the officer saw open beer cans on the boat.
Yates is charged with operating a motorboat while impaired, resisting a public officer, refusal to allow inspection and driving a motorboat in a no-wake zone.
Yates' attorney, Steve Barnhill, would not talk about the case.
Yates was elected to the commission in 2010.
