Minors arrested at Lake Wawasee
Eighteen minors were arrested Sunday by Indiana conservation officers on charges of illegal possession and consumption of alcohol on the Lake Wawasee sandbar.
Officers received a complaint of a large party on the sandbar with several teenagers illegally consuming alcohol, according to a news release. Two officers observed several violations taking place on five boats that were tied together.
The officers were participating in Operation Dry Water, a national awareness campaign about boating under the influence of alcohol.
Alcohol contributes to more than half of Indiana boating fatalities. It is illegal to operate a boat while under the influence of alcohol.
