Investigation continues into Labor Day BUI accident on Lake Lanier

Investigators continue looking into an incident that seriously injured a woman in Forsyth County on Labor Day.

Mark McKinnon with the Department of Natural Resources says 32-year old Iva Filto of Atlanta suffered serious injuries to her legs after a party pontoon boat backed over her at the Port Royale Marina.

"There was alcohol involved," McKinnon said. "So, it's just one of those things, you know, not much good happens when you mix alcohol and boating."

Game wardens arrested the operator of the boat, 32-year old Olajide Olaolorun of Atlanta, and he faces charges of BUI.
