Beer, tequila and anti-depressants played a role in the May 14 crash on Grand Lake which took the life of a Grove woman.

In a preliminary report, released Wednesday by the Grand River Dam Authority police, indicates John DeSelms, 22, of Tulsa, had consumed approximately 10 beers, one shot of tequila and taken an unknown anti-depressant at the time of the accident.

DeSelms also admitted to smoking marijuana approximately two days prior to the event, the report continues.

The accident, which occurred on the Duck Creek branch of Grand Lake, took the life of Rachel Nicole Swetnam, 21, of Grove, and William "Trey" Lewis Varner, III., 21, of Texarkana, Ark.

DeSelms and Taylor Perry, Springdale, Ark., were injured in the accident and transported to Craig General Hospital in Vinita, for treatment.

DeSelms was arrested at the hospital and cited for operating a vessel under the influence. He was released on a medical own recognizance bond.

Kenny Wright, Delaware County assistant district attorney said he is waiting to receive the final report from the GRDA police, to determine what, if any, charges will be officially filed against DeSelms.

He said all factors will be weighed in his decision, including the wishes of both victims' families.

At the very least, he said, DeSelms may face a charge of boating under the influence. The "top end of the bracket" could mean a charge of first-degree manslaughter.
