Jet Ski Accident Caused

's near-fatal jet ski accident could have been avoided if he had bothered to take a boating safety class, or at least read the manual ... according to a newly released police report obtained by TMZ.

Investigators say Kingston's "inexperience" and "inattention" were solely to blame. The cops specifically called him out for not understanding basic boating safety procedures. They believe Kingston stupidly released the throttle while turning the steering wheel at the same time, causing him to lose control over the watercraft.

As we reported in May, the "Beautiful Girls" singer was critically injured when he crashed his brand new jet ski into a bridge in Miami Beach.

The three-month police investigation reveals just how close Kingston was to dying. According to the report, Kingston crashed into the bridge with such force, his head, arms and upper chest, left an imprint on the cement (see photo below).

Kingston was cited for "careless operation in an accident" and fined a whopping $180.

Why wasn’t he ordered by judge to perform community service and clean up his grease stains off of public property?

DOES THIS TYPE OF ACCIDENT REALLY JUSTIFY A 3 MONTH INVESTIGATION? OR IS ALL FOR A POSSIBLE LAW SUIT AGAINST THE JET SKI COMPANY? AND IF SO WHY IS PUBLIC LAW ENFORCEMENT DOING THE INVESTIGATION? NOT BEING AN INVESTIGATOR BUT JUST HAVING COMMON SENSE THE PICTUR OF THE IMPRINT JUST DOESNT SEEM VERY POSSIBLE...WHO RELEASED THIS KINGSTON'S PUBLICIST? SO TIRED OF NONSENSE P.R. FOR ENTERTAINERS TRYING TO GET BACK ON PAGE 1...NEWSPAPER REFERANCE FOR THOSE THAT HAVE NEVER READ ONE ...

The man almost lost his life and the freaking law enforcement aholes take the opportunity to generate some revenue by giving him a fine, no wonder some people get excited when they got shot! What a bunch of jerks, it was still an accident.
