Police want to arrest a 25-year-old local man following an incident Saturday at Lakeside Park.

Several people reported the man riding a jet ski made a very close run and sharp turn near the dock, splashing several children. They reported he might have been drunk. The driver and a female passenger then left the area, but soon after he came back and allegedly assaulted and threatened a man who confronted him.

He left on his jet ski before police arrived, but they know who he is and warrants are being sought for his arrest for dangerous operation of a vessel, assault, and uttering threats.
