False report charge in serious boat injuries on Lake Alan Henry

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

A husband and wife from Lubbock face charges of making a false statement to a peace officer because of their accounts of an incident at Lake Alan Henry in June. Two men suffered serious injuries that day.

A boat's propeller severed one man's foot; another man had both feet severed.

According the Texas Game Warden Lubbock District, Timothy Martin, 33, and Randi Martin, 32, both told investigators on-scene that Timothy Martin operated the throttle causing the injuries. A field sobriety test showed Timothy Martin was not intoxicated. Investigators suspected Randi Martin had been drinking.

In the following days, others who saw what happened contacted the Texas Game Warden's office and also posted accounts on social media. They said Randi Martin was at the boat's wheel, throttling up to dislodge an anchor, when the propeller injured both men.

The Garza County DA's office now has the case. Making a false statement to a peace officer is a Class B misdemeanor, with a punishment of up to 180 days in jail and up to a $2,000 fine.
