CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A 28-year-old man has been charged with boating while being intoxicated in connection with an accident that injured 10 people on Clear Lake in northern Iowa.

The Cerro Gordo County sheriff’s department says William Nicholas, of Clear Lake, also is charged with reckless use of a watercraft and violation of right of way rules. Authorities say Nicholas was operating a boat that slammed into a public dock on Aug. 3. Four people were hospitalized and six others were injured.

Nicholas didn’t immediately return a phone message left by The Associated Press on Wednesday. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney.
