Posted: Updated:
GRAND RAPIDS (WAOW) -

Grand Rapids Police Chief Dave Lewandowski says they will not recommend  charges against the other people involved in a July incident where a 16-year-old boy went through a dam in Wood County.

It happened when the boy was swimming in Lake Wazeecha with two friends. Officials say he intentionally went through the dam and came out the other side, suffering head and abdominal injuries.

Lewandowski consulted with the Wood County district attorney and decided not to pursue charges against the two teens. The boy who went through the dam won't be cited either.

 


19 July 2012 - Charges may be coming for other people involved in an incident where a 16-year-old boy went through a dam in Wood County.

Grand Rapids Police Chief Dave Lewandowski tells Newsline 9 he will be consulting with the Wood County district attorney. He says there were other people involved--but wouldn't go into their involvement.

Officials say, at this time, they do still do not believe the boy who went through the dam in Grand Rapids will be cited.

It happened earlier this month when the boy was swimming in Lake Wazeecha--police say he should not have been there. Officials say he intentionally went through the dam and came out the other side, suffering head and abdominal injuries.

Police say the incident is under investigation and that officials are still questioning those involved. Lewandowski says he is not receiving full cooperation.

Lewandowski says because the others involved are juveniles, their names are not being released at this time.
