(LIBERTY, IN) - Indiana Conservation Officers say a Cincinnati man drowned in Brookville Lake in Union County Sunday afternoon.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday for 32-year-old Roger Shands Jr.

Authorities say Shands had been dancing on the rear deck of a drifting boat when he fell into the water.

Other passengers on the boat were unsuccessful in their attempts to rescue Shands.

His body was found later Sunday night with the assistance of side-scan sonar.

Authorities believe alcohol was involved in the accident and will wait for toxicology results taken during the autopsy to confirm.

The owner of the board, 32-year-old Shea Barth, was arrested for boating while intoxicated.
