DEVILS LAKE, N.D. —The driver in a boat crash on Devils Lake that killed a Minnesota woman earlier this month is in custody.


Thomas J. Burns, 54, Grand Forks, was arrested Wednesday afternoon at the Lake Region Law Enforcement Center after being interviewed by investigators, according to a report from the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department.

Burns allegedly had a blood alcohol content of more than twice the legal limit when the boat he was driving struck a tree sticking out of the lake on Aug. 9, according to an arrest warrant issued Tuesday.
