Linda O'Leary, the wife of 'Shark Tank' star Kevin O'Leary, has been charged in connection to a fatal boating accident the couple was involved earlier this summer. As Fox News reports:

The wife of “Shark Tank” star Kevin O’Leary has been charged with “careless operation of a vessel” in connection with a boat accident that killed two people in Canada last month.

The Ontario Provincial Police told Fox News that Linda O’Leary was charged for the Aug. 24 accident, in which her smaller vessel struck a larger vessel in Ontario, Canada. Her court date is set for Oct. 29. A rep for Kevin O'Leary did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment.

According to TMZ, police obtained five videos from surveillance cameras which showed she was driving the boat at 17 mph around 11:30 p.m., which police told the outlet is not a safe speed.

The Ontario Provincial Police also charged Richard Ruh, who was on the vessel that was hit, with "failing to exhibit navigation lights while underway." Police told Fox News that the penalty for that is a ticket, but could not confirm how much the ticket is for.


The man in the other boat died shortly after the accident at the scene.
