WASHINGTON COUNTY -- A Clear Spring man who fell about 20 feet Monday night when he went over Dam 5 on the Potomac River on a personal watercraft was cited with three violations and could face jail time as a second offender, said Sgt. Ken Turner of the Maryland Natural Resources Police.
Ryan A. Myers, 22, was cited Thursday night with negligent operation of a personal watercraft and operating in a restricted area, both as a second offender.
"We cited him last year on those two violations," Turner said by telephone Saturday afternoon.
If convicted, Myers could receive a maximum $1,000 fine and/or a year in jail on each citation.
A court date in Washington County District Court has been set for Sept. 23, Turner said.
Myers also was cited with operating a personal watercraft between sunset and sunrise, Turner said. That was a first offense for Myers and carries an $85 fine.
