(Spirit Lake)-- Charges have now been filed in connection with a motorcycle crash in October of this year that injured a Spirit Lake man.

The Dickinson County Sheriff's Office says the driver, 26-year-old Nicholas Watts of Spirit Lake, was charged with operating while intoxicated...2nd offense, and failure to maintain control.

The Sheriff's Office says the charges were just filed recently and are based on lab results that recently came back from the DCI Crime Lab.

Watts sustained incapacitating injuries. Authorities say he was ejected from the motorcycle when he failed to negotiate a curve while driving a 2005 Harley Davidson northbound on County Road M-56.
