Authorities have filed charges against an Arizona man in the drowning of a California resident at Lake Havasu last year.
The Mohave County Attorney's Office said Wednesday that 26-year-old Richard Allen Timmsen of Mesa is accused of felony endangerment and operating the boat under the influence of drugs. They didn't immediately know if he has a lawyer yet.
County sheriff's officials say 21-year-old Dwarkesh Prasannavathanam was being pulled on an inner tube behind a boat driven by Timmsen last March 24.
They say Prasannavathanam wasn't wearing a life jacket, fell off the inner tube and drowned in the north basin of the lake that straddles the Arizona-California border.
His body was recovered April 2.
Sheriff's officials say Prasannavathanam was a native of India who was living in Long Beach, Calif.
