Mariner's Landing.

The game warden also reported smelling
alcohol on de Tournillon both at the
scene and the hospital.


And for the first time, we're hearing
from Mark de Tournillon.

In a statement released today -- de
Tournillon said quote: My family and I

QUESTION: I understand there's been
some backlash at the Smith Mountain
Lake Boating Association?

That's right. The Boating Association
took an unofficial vote last night to
oust its president -- Tom Curling -- as
a result of our story yesterday.

A spokesperson for the association says
Curling's statements regarding de
Tournillon's *reputation* were
inaccurate.


Keith, he says the decision to boot
Curling was one the board had been
considering prior to our interview.

threatened to sue the NCAA over its new
