Water fun

Battery. A homeless man was arrested after he used a water gun to spray a woman in the face with a water outside of a grocery store.

The woman told a Sheriff’s Office deputy that she and her husband were leaving, driving through the shopping plaza in their car, according to an arrest report. She was in the passenger seat with her window down when the suspect aimed a water gun at her open window and sprayed her in the face.

She and her husband both told the deputy that the suspect began laughing at them, and the woman said her eyes began to sting as well. As the husband called dispatch to report the incident, he said that is when the suspect began to follow their car through the plaza, the report said.

The suspect told the deputy he was not intentionally aiming for the couple, but instead was spraying the water gun in the direction of a fire hydrant and did not see their car pass by. He told the deputy there was only water inside the toy, but the deputy suggested the woman get her eyes checked at the hospital just in case.

The man was placed under arrest.

Trespass. A man temporarily staying at an RV park refused to leave.

A manager at the park told Sheriff’s Office deputies that the main had been creating arguments with his neighbors, according to the man’s arrest record. She said the office gave him until June 2 at 11 a.m. to leave the site.

The man refused and so the park manager had him trespassed. When deputies tried to force the man from his RV and the property, the man got in their faces and refused to leave, even sitting “weighing” himself down at his kitchen table.

The officers arrested the man and placed him in the back of the patrol car. He was charged with resisting an officer, a crime for which he was already on probation. Because of the probation, the ma was also charged with violating parole.
