Ellingson was handcuffed behind his back, said Sgt. Paul Reinsch of the patrol. The trooper, Anthony C. Piercy, 42, was driving the 2008 Donzi patrol boat and had put Ellingson in a standard “Level 3” life jacket, which looks like a vest and has three front buckles. Piercy was driving Ellingson to a zone station to give him a breath test.
