Whether your behind the wheel of a car or boat, driving drunk is illegal.

Todd Halkerston of Naperville was arrested for operating a boat while drunk after causing a crash at Lake Holiday that sent four girls between 10 and 14 years old to the hospital. Conservation Police say the girls who are all from Plainfield were on a tube Friday night being pulled by Halkerston’s boat when he got too close to a boat lift, causing the girl’s tube to crash.

One of the girls was flown to Rockford Hospital. The other three were taken to Ottawa, Sandwich and Aurora hospitals.
