The man accused of operating a boat in a crash that killed two people is out on bond.  We’re also learning more about Steven Angle’s past.  

According to jail records, Steven Angle bonded out of jail on the charge of boating under the influence under a bond of just $1,000 at about 10:30 Sunday night.  He lives in Mobile and, according to jail records across the bay, this is not his first brush with the law.  The Mobile County Jail log indicates he was arrested in 2002 for DUI and arrested in 2005 on a charge of reckless endangerment.  

Sunday afternoon along the Mobile Bay Causeway was the scene of this latest incident.  An official with ALEA says Angle was boating under the influence with three others on board his skiff when the boat slammed into a Bayway pylon.  A woman was killed on the scene.  60-year-old Bobby Daryl Lambert was critically injured and transported via helicopter before he died from his injuries. 

It is unknown the condition of the third person who was airlifted from the scene in serious condition. The names of the other two female victims have not been released.  An ALEA spokesman said Angle may face more serious charges depending on the outcome of a grand jury hearing.  I spoke with Baldwin County DA Robert Wilters who said more charges will be determined after an investigation.
