A near miss on the water now means a Cambridge teen is facing a charge under the Canada Shipping Act.
The incident happened Saturday afternoon on Lake Erie, near Long Point Bay.
Ontario Provincial Police allege the operator of a jet ski approached another vessel, which almost resulted in a collision.
That's when police were contacted.
Officers patrolling the lake subsequently located the operator and conducted an investigation.
As a result, police have charged a 17-year-old with operating vessel in a careless manner, without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other persons.
