A down-state police officer who deputies say was operating a boat while drunk on Torch Lake will spend a year on probation.

Peter Alestra was arrested last July, deputies say he wouldn't stop the boat for Marine Officers.

They also say Alestra wouldn't cooperate while police tried to give him a breath test.

An Antrim County jury found him guilty yesterday.
