Drowning of boater at the Lake of the Ozarks sparks questions about his arrest

The death of Brandon Ellingson has sparked an internal investigation by the Missouri Highway Patrol and outrage from family and friends who question the actions of the trooper who arrested Ellingson for boating while intoxicated and was transporting him for a breath test when the Iowa man went overboard. The questions center on when and how a life vest was placed on Ellingson and whether the trooper followed the patrol’s procedures for securing someone in custody.
