JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A Texas man who authorities attempted to rescue from a Wyoming river after he fell off his raft without a life jacket on was arrested on suspicion that he was drunk.

Grand Teton National Park rangers launched an air, water and ground search Saturday evening after a call came in about the man tumbling into Snake River.

Teton park spokeswoman Denise Germann said the man was able to get back into his raft on his own. Authorities made contact and he was cited for boating under the influence, interference, disorderly conduct, under the influence creating danger to self and others, refusal of breath test and contempt of court.
