Tyler Bray to make PSA on boating safety following incident


LENOIR CITY (WATE) - Tyler Bray was scheduled to be back in court on Wednesday to follow up on charges that stem from a 2012 boating incident.

The former University of Tennessee football quarterback's attorney told the court that he would not be attending because he was scheduled to appear at Pro Day and thanked the court for allowing him to miss his court date.

Bray was scheduled to check back in with Loudon County Sessions Court for reckless boating charges.

Those charges stem from a boating incident on Tellico Lake in which the personal watercraft he was driving came dangerously close to two people in the water.

He was subsequently cited by a TWRA officer.

During his initial court appearance last August, Bray was told the charge would be dismissed if he agreed to make several boating safety appearances or a public service announcement (PSA) and suspend his boating license privileges for one year.

Bray has yet to make the PSA, but his attorney said he plans to do so.

He must also pay court costs and take a two three-hour boating certification classes.

Bray is expected to have those requirements completed by his next court day, May 1.
