A Middle Tennessee man scheduled to get married later this month drowned over the weekend.

William Bates, 27, of Tullahoma, was out with his friends on his bachelor party Saturday afternoon on Center Hill Lake in DeKalb County.

Officers with the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency say Bates jumped off a pontoon boat and never resurfaced.

His body was recovered Sunday.

An autopsy will be performed.

Bates' wedding day was set for September 21.
