Man with suspicious device towed to shore on James
Friday - 5/20/2011, 3:05pm EDT
SURRY, Va. - The Coast Guard says a James River boater who had a suspicious device chained to his body has been towed to shore.
Chief Petty Officer Mike Hvozda said Friday the black box that was attached to a chain wrapped around the man's neck contained sand.
Virginia Marine Police spokesman John Bull said the unidentified man was in a nine-foot inflatable raft about two miles off shore, between Fort Eustis and the Surry nuclear power plant.
Several federal, state and local agencies responded after a crabber reported the boater to authorities about 7 a.m.
Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said the 32-year-old Williamsburg resident was intoxicated and is under medical observation. No criminal charges have been filed.
Bull says the man was alternately lucid and incoherent.
