Clemson offensive lineman Roman Fry is fined $257.50 for reckless operation of a watercraft by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources after fatally striking Clemson assistant track coach Jarrett Foster on Lake Keowee on July 8, but won't face more serious charges, said Fry's attorney Beattie Ashmore, on September 13, 2006. Also fined the same amount was offensive guard Nathan Bennett who was operating the WaveRunner that Foster was riding on when he fell off and was struck in the head by Fry's craft. This resolution was reached after a month of "extensive negotiations", said Ashmore. Foster's family has signed off on the decision, and the DNR considers the case closed. At the time of the accident, the Oconee County coroner's office ruled the death accidental.
