A witness told News 3's Kim Cung he pulled Thomas out of the water and waited for police to arrive.

"I got there on the dock; boat was still there, engine running," said Larry Caraway. "I shut the motors off and the person driving the boat was in the water under the boat."

Two boats tipped on their side and one ran up onto the dock after the crash, causing thousands of dollars in damage.

Thomas has been arrested for boating under the influence and is currently in a local jail.
