Authorities are investigating the sinking of a yacht owned by Las Vegas entertainer Wayne Newton at a Lake Mead marina.

National Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover said Monday that the 65-foot vessel sank stern-first in 45 feet of water while it was in a slip at the Temple Bar marina about 80 miles east of Las Vegas.

Vanover says no one was on the boat, and no injuries are reported.


CeeLo Green has pleaded not guilty to giving a woman ecstasy before going back to her hotel, and additionally was not charged with rape.

A lawyer for the musician and producer, who is a judge on US talent show “The Voice,” expressed satisfaction that prosecutors said Monday there was not enough evidence for sexual assault charges.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said Green “allegedly slipped ecstasy to a 33-year-old female while the two were dining at a downtown Los Angeles” restaurant in July last year.

“The two later went back to the woman’s hotel. Prosecutors declined to file a charge of rape of an intoxicated person, citing insufficient evidence,” it added.

Any sexual contact between the two was consensual, she told the TMZ celebrity news website.
