CHARLOTTE HARBOR — Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers do not plan to file criminal charges against those involved in a boating mishap over the long holiday weekend that left two men stranded in harbor waters for several hours.
FWC regional spokesman Gary Morse said the agency was unable to determine who was behind the wheel of the 23-foot vessel when it abandoned the two men in the water, but did acknowledge that several of the individuals were intoxicated at the time of the incident. Morse said the agency has wrapped up its investigation and was merely assisting the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office because the incident occurred in its jurisdiction.
