A Colorado State University student accused of running over and mauling a man with a boat at Horsetooth Reservoir last summer has pleaded guilty to drunken boating and is to receive probation.

The Coloradoan reports that 22-year-old Chris Feller took a plea agreement Tuesday to have the felony vehicular-assault charge dismissed.
The boat's propeller broke Anthony Olmsted's hip and foot the afternoon of June 30 as it sliced deep cuts through most of the right side of his body. Feller told investigators he was dropping Olmsted off near the swim beach and didn't know he already jumped off the boat when he reversed it and heard screams, according to Feller's arrest affidavit.
The legal limit for drunken boating in Colorado is 0.08 blood-alcohol content, same as for driving.
