Charges against Delegate Don Dwyer were announced Thursday for a boat accident in August that sent several people to the hospital.
In response, Delegate Dwyer issued the following statement Friday morning.
I am regretful that I unwisely chose to operate a boat after drinking alcohol. From the beginning I have admitted my error in judgment. I am grateful that DNR has finally concluded their investigation and I am gratified that the findings do not reflect blame for the accident on me as is apparent in the resulting citations and the fact that the other operator was also charged.
Though the media has reported that I collided with the other boat involved in the accident, the fact is my boat was struck and sank as a result of being hit in the left side.
I sincerely wish for the continued recovery of all injured. I look forward to resolving this issue legally and moving forward. I ask forgiveness from the citizens who have looked to me to represent them with honor and integrity in the General Assembly and I intend to prove my personal temporary difficulties did not and will not affect my ability to represent my constituents fully and completely with character and trustworthiness in the future.
