The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) reports a busy, but quiet holiday weekend on Lake Havasu. Not a single boating accident was reported over the 4th of July holiday.
“There was a heavy law enforcement presence on the water including MCSO, SBSD, AZGFD, LHCPD and the U.S. Coastguard,” said MCSO Sergeant Ed Trafecanty. “Although it was busy, it wasn’t as busy as years past. I cannot recall in 18+ years of service that MCSO didn’t have a single reported boat accident on a major holiday weekend.”
The MCSO said officers handled 17 boater assistance calls and arrested six people for operating a watercraft under the influence.
