ACWORTH, Ga. — Bartow County police have arrested a man for brandishing a knife and running nude through a marina and campground.

Police charged 40-year-old Christopher Vanover with public indecency after the incident at a marina in Acworth Sunday. Police also charged him with second-degree criminal damage to property, theft by taking and criminal trespass after they say he knocked on the door of a boat on Dock F, grabbed a steak knife, then began cutting the boat's canopy.

Later, police say he took a cell phone and entered a recreational vehicle parked at the campground.

Campsights used to be so

Campsights used to be so safe. We were regular campers until it was no longer so we could go. I always felt my children were safe back in the days. Seems like everything is being taken over by the Bad and ugly! SusieQ

That is why one of my most

That is why one of my most important pieces of camping gear is a .40 cal Glock. My boating gear is a .45 cal Colt. Jump on my boat or run into my camper naked with a knife and see how that works out for you. The taxpayer won't have to worry about paying for your mental health care or drug rehab.

Never run with a knife while

Never run with a knife while nude and never enter a recreational vehicle with a cell phone. Rules to remember when visiting a campground if you want to stay out of jail.
