Pond Skim crash may bring felony charges
Sending it across an open pond with an open bar tab is a recipe for epic crashes, but one Colorado man kicked it up a notch last weekend, and now could face felony assault charges as a result. Bloody Mary in hand, the 26-year-old tried to jump the crowd at Copper Mountain's Slopesoakers pond skim, but tumbled into guests instead, breaking a woman's collarbone and injuring several others according to the Summit Daily.
