Police say a snowmobile fell through thin ice on a northern New Hampshire lake and the man driving it has been arrested on drunken driving charges.

The Fish and Game Department says 32-year-old Eric Chamberland of Bradford was arrested early Saturday following the accident at Back Lake in Pittsburg.

Chamberland told authorities he drove out onto the frozen lake late Friday and had become disoriented due to falling snow. He began circling about 100 feet from shore when the machine broke the 2-to-3-inch ice surface and submerged in 10 feet of water.

Chamberland was able to crawl up onto the ice and get to the shoreline. He was cold and wet, but not hurt.
