Man arrested for driving drunk, dragging boat on wrong side of road

A 22-year-old Massachusetts man was arrested early Saturday morning after police said he was driving drunk and dragging a boat behind him on the wrong side of the road. 

The Sandwich Police Department said an officer was driving along a service road around 1:30 a.m. September 4 and was nearly hit head-on by a vehicle pulling a boat trailer. 

Police say the boat, a 19-foot center console, had fallen off the trailer and was being dragged in the opposite lane of traffic. 

The officer wasn’t hit and was able to initiate a traffic stop. 

Police said the 22-year-old man behind the wheel was arrested for operating while under the influence, negligent operation and marked lanes violations. 

He was expected to be arraigned on charges Tuesday.
