TOLEDO, OR (KPTV) -

A man on a rubber raft causing a disturbance in the Olalla Reservoir near Toledo was arrested on the charge of boating under the influence of intoxicants, according to deputies.

A Linn County Sheriff's Office marine deputy responded to a report of a disorderly man in the reservoir at 3:30 p.m. Monday.

The deputy contacted Gregory Wold, 46, of Toledo. Wold was on a rubber raft and matched the description from witnesses of the disorderly suspect.

The deputy said Wold was drinking alcohol and boating. He consented to and failed field sobriety tests, according to the sheriff's office.

Wold was arrested on the charge of BUII and booked into the Lincoln County Jail.

"Boating and drinking can be a deadly mix. One third of all boating fatalities in Oregon each year are alcohol-related. Operating a boat while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a crime in Oregon. The law applies to all boats, motorized and non-motorized, which includes rafts, kayaks and canoes," according to a Lincoln County Sheriff's Office statement.
