MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — A man from Grand Bay is charged with manslaughter in the death of another man in a fatal boat crash in November of 2020. 30-year-old Jacob Barrow was indicted by a Mobile County Grand Jury in May.

Barrow was booked into the Mobile County Jail Sunday afternoon and released on bail hours later. Jail records indicate he has no prior arrests in Mobile County. The document does not say where in Mobile County this incident happened.
