Parents told police they asked the 28-year-old man to leave after he joined the children's party at Green Lake on Wednesday evening. However, police say the shirtless, shoeless man refused and got into a "very heated" exchange with the families at the party. The families called police.
In a release on their website, police say the man appeared to be under the influence of a "potent relaxant of some kind."
Officers first checked to see if the man needed medical attention, then arrested him for investigation of theft.
