SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) The police chief of Angelo State University in San Angelo has been charged with misdemeanor boating while intoxicated over Memorial Day weekend.

The San Angelo Standard-Times reported Friday that Chief James Adams was booked into the Tom Green County Jail on May 25. Records show Adams was released the following day on $1,000 bail.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says Adams was on a personal watercraft at Lake Nasworthy. Lt. Jason Huebner says the operator allegedly created a wake in a no-wake zone and showed signs of possible intoxication.

ASU spokesman Preston Lewis on Friday said school officials were informed at the time of the incident and human resources policies have been followed. Lewis didn't immediately specify the policies and says Adams was not available for comment.
