A 70 year old Douglas man was arrested Monday after he was found intoxicated, belligerent and with a loaded gun on his boat.
Richard Lepage faces charges of disorderly conduct and being an intoxicated person in possesion of a firearm.
Officers were dispatched to Besse Park at 8:45 a.m. Monday on reports of an intoxicated man on a boat. Upon arrival, the officers tried to speak with Mr. Lepage and found him uncooperative and screaming expletives. Officers further discovered a handgun on the boat's console.
As the man became increasingly hostile, officers took him into custody. The loaded gun was secured.
Lepage will be arraigned in Wareham District Court today.
