20-year-old Adam Hollis was charged with negligent operation of a boat, boating under the influence, possession of alcohol under 21, NASBLA boating violation, and implied consent after TWRA observed a boat with a passenger on the bow and found Busch cans rolling around on his boat.

On May 24th, around 6 pm on Percy Priest Lake police noticed a bass boat traveling with a passenger riding on the bow of the boat in an elevated seat, which is reckless operation, via report. When the police initiated their blue lights and siren the boat continued moving with the driver not paying attention to the police vessel. The defendant, Adam Hollis, refused to look at the officer when police caught up to the boat, but the officer noticed that Hollis looked flush with bloodshot, watery eyes.
