BOSTON (CBS) – A Salem man was charged with his third OUI on Tuesday afternoon after  a hit and run boating accident where he crashed into a sail boat, took off,  and wound up running aground on a rocky shoal just off Salem.

Police say 43-year-old Bradford Smith appeared intoxicated when they arrived.

Officers also said Smith was uncooperative.

Smith recently had his driver’s license reinstated after losing it for 10 years over alcohol-related incidents.

He will be charged with OUI as well as leaving the scene of an accident.

A judge ordered Smith to be held without bail for up to 90 days as a danger to the public.

There will be a pretrial hearing on August 30.
