LAKE ELSINORE - On Sunday, April 14, deputies from the Lake Elsinore Police Department observed a yellow flat bottom boat traveling against the traffic pattern in violation of Lake Elsinore Municipal Code 9.96.160.

The boat was also following the buoy line from the area of Elsinore West Marina heading towards Launch Pointe. The vessel entered the "No Wake" zone of the Launch Pointe Harbor at an estimated 25 miles per hour and turned toward the docks in violation of 9.96.140 Lake Elsinore Municipal Code.

Deputies conducted a enforcement stop on the vessel and deputies immediately noticed a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the driver of the vessel and objective symptoms of being under the influence of an alcoholic beverage.

Based on the deputies' observations, they conducted field sobriety tests which the driver did not pass.

The driver Damon Christian Forrest, 28, of West Covina was subsequently arrested and transported to the Cois Byrd Detention Center for Boating while under the influence.
