Authorities: La Crosse man who drowned in Black River was intoxicated

LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A man who drowned in the Black River in La Crosse was extremely drunk at the time.

That's according to test results on 23-year-old Shalim Augustine of La Crosse.

Authorities said he was last seen by friends near a boat landing where he was hanging out.

Augustine's body was pulled from the Black River just south of an Interstate bridge on July 11th, a couple days after he went missing.

The county medical examiner said Augustine's blood alcohol level was 0.32 -- which would be four times the legal limit for drunk driving in Wisconsin.
