The charges against a man who was accused of throwing an 8-year-old boy off a waterslide in Apple Valley have been dismissed.
Roman Alexander Adams was 18 when he was charged in connection to the July 31, 2018, incident.
According to court documents dated May 18, Adams had been found incompetent to stand trial in January 2019, September 2019 and Jan. 5, 2021, and a doctor said it is "exceedingly unlikely" that he'll achieve competency, which prompted the state to dismiss the charges against him.
The criminal complaint said the boy had been standing on the platform for a waterslide at the Apple Valley Family Aquatic Center when a man picked him up and threw the child over the railing. The 8-year-old boy broke his leg, and a Go Fund Me page raised more than $37,000 for his "long road to recovery."
Adams had later admitted to police that he threw the child off the platform because the line was taking too long, charges said.
