Man Charged With Disorderly Conduct at Canobie Lake Park

A man was arrested outside of Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire, on Saturday after he became distraught about not being able to get a refund in rainy weather.

Around 5 p.m., Salem Police were called to the front gate of Canobie Lake Park for the report of a distraught guest. The suspect, later identified as 32-year-old Randy Lewis of Foxboro, was demanding his money back because it was raining; but employees explained to him that the park was not closing so he would not get a refund. Lewis allegedly said to the employees that if he did not get his money back there would be a thumping, and began to yell profanities at the employees.

Officers began to explain to Lewis that due to his disorderly behavior, he would be trespassed from the park and ordered to leave. Ultimately, Lewis refused and officers began to place him under arrest. When officers tried to handcuff him, Lewis got on the ground and placed his arms under his body. The officers used a taser on Lewis as a large crowd of people began to form. At this time, members of Lewis' family began to yell at the officers.

Lewis was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest or detention, and criminal trespass. He is held on $2,500 bail and will appear in court on Sept. 28.
