Two snowboarders accused of triggering an avalanche in the United States face a fine of more than $ 234,000 if found guilty.
There were no cars on the road at that time and no one was injured. Both Hannibal and DeWitt pleaded not guilty.
He’s seeking to take them down with a $ 234,260 fine.
“They realized there was a danger,” Brown said, “but got down that slope anyway.”
“The public has a bill that must be paid.”
But the skaters claimed the amount was “outrageous,” saying that the authorities praised their cooperation and that the accusations came as a surprise.
The two men said they quickly called emergency services after the avalanche to let them know what had happened.
