A reckless boater has been fined and put on probation after nearly running over three swimmers at Waimea Bay.
It was all captured on video.
A Waialua resident reported the incident and sent a video with it.
The state Department of Land and Natural Resources says the boater, Perry Rauch, nearly ran over two swimmers, and then nearly ran over a fisherman.
Motorized boats are not allowed at Waimea Bay.
“Very reckless and extremely dangerous, we’ve seen what a person looks like when a boat hits that person, it’s not a pretty sight and it becomes very unfortunate when a fatality occurs as a result,” state Department of Land and Natural Resources DOCARE Administrator Randy Awo said.
The boater was fined $855 and must serve six months probation.
